Things got a bit strange around here - I buggered my back and have been popping nuclear strength prescription painkillers! I could sit my laptop on my legs, but typing has been limited putting my card details in as I order more seeds that I don't need.
I've ordered seeds for a giant Lobelia - by giant I mean 9 metres in the right conditions! The right conditions are to be found in Kenya though...................

Sorry to hear about your back, it's so frustrating when that happens, not to say painful and debilitating.

9 metres?? Sounds like a giant beanstalk!

looks like a forest! will it take over your street?

Just five seeds so probably not! Needs to come indoors for the winter too.
