I think I might try and get one and see how it goes. I have quite sandy soil (well pretty much dust in the summer). It should be quite happy in the warmer months and maybe put it in the greenhouse over winter.
Thanks for the info.
Thanks for the identification Nutcutlet! I've never seen one before. It was thriving, maybe there's a mini micro-climate there I don't know 🤔. Pictures are from today.

Whilst on a little trip to Swanage earlier, I noticed this interesting plant growing near the car park. It looks rather tropical and was growing in rather an exposed position on the sea front. It was about 6 foot high with lots of limbs coming from a central point on the ground. Any ideas?
Thanks for the replies. :-) I crushed a leaf and it just smells of cut grass. Not carroty really.
I've just been getting my veg plot ready for the year ahead and have found an interloper happily growing there. Can anyone ID him for me?
Ah yes, it does look like an oleander! I should have thought of that! Thanks.
While waiting for Monty to reappear, I was watching a repeat of The Autistic Gardener on Channel 4. At one point they flashed onto a plant which I think will be nice in my 'tropical' garden. Any ideas what it is?
Any other ideas?
Thanks. I'll pot them up and keep them in the green house then. :-)
A neighbour of mine has been thinning out her Cannas in her front garden. I've always been envious of them as they always look so healthy despite the, being behind a wall in a north facing garden. Anyway she's given me a load of bulbs for free along with a couple of plants. Can anyone tell me if I should plant them in the ground now or wait until the frosts have passed.
