That unusual then Andrew.......I didn't realise you write a blog as well? saw your comment on The Patient Gardeners blog, which I follow.

Yes, my blog is
I sometimes post the same material as a blog on here.

Yes I noticed......have been thinking of writing one about growing plants down South, is it easy to set up with WordPress?

Very easy, also free if you go with the basic options. But you need to invest a lot of time looking at, and commenting on, other blogs to build up your own following. As with many things in life, it's all about the advertising.

Sbg - I've not found any seedlings as it flowers so late in the year, I don't think it has time to ripen any seeds. But it is getting into quite a large plant in just three years. Consensus seems to be about 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide maximum.
