love the colours...great plants. The are good multipliers too... really easy to propagate from cuttings as well as seed...(you didn't happen to help with a little pruning while you were there, did you David?) I think I'd have been tempted...

I was tempted, Lori, lol!! Lost all my cuttings during winter when my heating broke down for a week. Will be making more, this year, however.

Tragedy! Was last winter as severe as it was here? Whenever I went to the Uni greenhouses (public ones) I always kept an eye on the floor...sometimes there were leaves or pieces of stem that missed the broom...lol.

Shorter than the previous, but much harsher. I went to work one morning, was stranded there for 3 days, then got home to find the boiler had given up in the meantime. Temps down to only -16C, but the inside of my house was iced over, lol. Took a week for an engineer to get round to calling. House fine, plants all dead. :-(( We used to ask about the various plants first, before taking cuttings and some surrounding compost, lol!

Things can only get better!
