Hello Janey - Thanks for the lovely comments! Yes they are in my greenhouse - I love them! Sadly over the Winter I lost 6 or 7 to the dreaded Vine Weevil even though I had dosed the compost with provado. I now have an excuse to look through Dibley's catalogue for some new ones!!

They really are beautiful Anita....that's a shame about the vine you think they'll be okay this coming winter? Are they easy to overwinter in the greenhouse? You don't find it too hot for them in the summer?

Hello Janey! - The Streptocarpus live in the house over the winter- I will dose them again before I bring them inside.I am trying to keep them growing well and have just taken some cuttings to try and increase my stock.
I am lucky to have 3 greenhouses but only keep one of them heated thru' the Winter and it is always chocker block with cuttings for the next year.
