I love the smell of it,  It reminds me of when we lived in London and every house had it for a front hedge.

Don't see it so much down here but I've grown a hedge of it just to screen of the area of garden that  has become a bit of dumping ground.

I will be sowing Spring cabbage at the end of July to grow in the greenhouse when the tomatoes are finished.

It will self seed if you leave some pods on.  You can take cuttings but seeding is probably the best.

Thanks for that tip. We don't eat pot noodles but will think about using yogurt pots as an alternative. 

See original post

 I don't eat pot noodles either but it's simple snack for the fisherman. (Cornish fisherman are very healthy despite their diet😀) I don't find yogurt pots any good, they are too floppy and soft and not long enough, unless you buy the big pots.

Tumbelina Petunias don't produce seed, you can only propagate by cuttings, try later in the year and keep them indoors in the warm over winter.

i wouldn't bother personally, you can buy little plugs in the Spring which aren't too expensive, pot up then pot on and keep inside until frosts are over,  then plant our in your baskets.

I cut up pot noodle pots, SIL is a sea fisherman and takes them with him for quick snacks.
