This self-sown plant is doing better than any I planted!

Have never seen one that tall, will be a problem if ours grows to that height lol a picture though.

(Mouldy slinks off, abashed at using that particular word)

What slinks?

12 May, 2013


Furtively, guiltily, fox-like.
For you girls it's's sinuously, vampishly, you describe a little black number or undies as slinky. Lol.

Oh ha ha, swallowed a dictionary methinks!!

I looked for this for years. I then grew 1 from RHS seed and now I have dozens of self sowns and behead the flowers rigorously.

Should've pled ignorance. Lol.

This particular one looks to be about 4ft.
How tall do they grow?

20 May, 2013


Mine rarely top 2ft.

Vincent is right, all my others are about two feet tall. But this one must be on steroids, as it's about three and a half feet high

I was guesstimating using the brick courses as a rough guide, I have to confess.
