I've got it in the conservatory at the moment & I've just come in & it's really shining blueish green, more blue I think.

Meanie yes he sells great stuff & if you have his catalogue he writes in funny little quips at the bottom of the pages & tells you if the plants are "bomb proof".

Just remembered this - how is it doing?

Hello Meanie, yes I still have it, was just looking at it today, will be going over soon. It's in the cold greenhouse.

I've ordered seed. The others that I'm growing were easy from seed so here's hoping.

Wow, just realized how long ago I aquired that. I don't look after it at all well, usually forget to start watering again untill I see it's started to shoot. It's summer dormant. Someone was selling young plants of it at our HPS club last Autumn. I took my "drooping" pot full for the display table & then this person turned up with her "perky" little young ones. lol.

I've found that as long as they get their summer rest (and bake in the greenhouse) they are very willing and tolerate all kinds of abuse.
