Dove you make your OH sound like an alchofrolic 

Mine does the same, no need to buy all the fancy stuff, nature takes care of everything, if you let it.

I agree with you Fairy, poor Sebastian, I felt sorry for him the whole way through, dominated by mother and her fanatical religion.

Jeremy Irons is one of my all time favourites as well, saw him in a cowboy the other day.

I am trying to battle through some other Waugh, but nothing compares to Brideshead.

I think it could be doubtful that it will overwinter, Anita, I have done a few cuttings and will pile a load of compost on then hope. I think the hot pink one will, it has leaves like the Hotlips and they survive ok.

i don't think the red one will survive, I've already brought it in.

It's such a beautiful piece Dove 

Escapism Verd.  It's not my thing either, despite Brideshead Revisited being my all time favourite book and piece of TV. That had a lot to do with the writing, production, acting and the faithful adaptation of the book, as much as anything else though. It's also a study of class, privilege and all that goes with it    

Mine too Fairy, watch it every time it's on, love the book as well.

Don't be scaredy cat.....

It seems that here anyway, September is a good time because I sowed some more at the end of October and they haven't come up yet. I have saved some to sow in March.
