I think I had one of these as a houseplant years ago.. We had a rash of tomato seedlings pop up in our borders last year, I think from fruit put into the compst bin, but they appeared too late to ripen fruit, sadly. I must say they looked in better condition than any I have ever tried to grow from shop bought seed!

Shrimp plant is an easy low-maintenance plant which grows to 4 or 5 ft tall here. It blooms all year so it looks good all the time.

It’s funny how the tomato plants which pop up do better than garden shop plants.
