Lamb and roasties and green beans eaten. Now watching big blue live from Monterey. It's 15 years since we went there. We saw elephant seals near big sur, and the otters and sea lions near Monterey. Monterey bay aquarium is the ultimate aquarium.

There are rooted cuttings available in Spring, from garden centres. Also lidl had some this year. Grown on in the big pots ,15inch at least, feed and water. Cuttings will root in water over winter. The plant can be cut down and overwintered frost free, October . I will see if I can get some photos of mine as they are now.
