Took a while, but I finally got the Car down. I did think you;d lost the plot there for a minute!! Been sitting under too many of the poppies in your OZ garden noo doubt!!

Planted Cardoon, but removed the blossom. it became a fountain of gray green...It was a car stopper. met some new friends when they stopped to ask about it. found the seed in the Richter Herbs, seed catalogue..Do you have any family in N.A. who sell herb seeds? lol. check them out on the web...

I bought one of these last weekend, Andrea! Hope it will turn out as good as this one.

I'm sure it will David, give it plenty of room and put your satellite plants a couple of feet away from the bottom otherwise it will block out their light, I always have to cut the bottom leaves off the Cardoon as I planted it as an afterthought and my other plants aren't getting the light they need.

Well, I'm still wondering where to plant it!
