Very poor here granma. Like you I've had a few flowers but I think there's one fruit starting now. I've not grown them before had the plant given to me.

They look really good KEF and a good crop

One of my old plants is being chomped by them. Another favourite is sweet rocket.

I don't know if you seeds are ready Yviestevie,I seem to remember they take ages to brown. I've had really good results at sowing in small cubes and potting up and then out in the garden.

I cut off the flower shoots when they are long and straggley. It will keep producing new growth and more flowers.

Cuttings do root easily, although sometimes it's hard to find a non flowering shoot. One of my favourites, flower all year long and the insects love it
