Still looking good no sign of it increasing though,not sure what it will take to do so,

Janis Ruksans says it "readily sets seed ... plants increase well vegetatively." I've had it for three years now, but it didn't appear last year and I thought I had lost it. Something nibbled through the stem two days after the flower opened this year, and the whole thing collapsed. :-(

Andrew I would have the same if not worse problem were I to try them in the open ground hence why I keep them well off the ground,lot of work but i enjoy it.
