Sad plant!

one of the erysimums, wallflowers, I'd chuck it and start again.

Second quote from Christopher Lloyd in one day.

Don't take cuttings from tired and worn out plants.

I've never noticed a smell either Fairy and they're heaped up in the door frame

I smell the bats sometimes when weather conditions are right, even when the bats aren't at home

I'm happy with sow now germinate sometime next year but longer than that and I can't be bothered with it
