I looked at the book, not too hardy. Looked at the price, praps not
It grows wild. People used to go out and did it up from the roadsides.
If it's as wet as mine I'd keep off it.
It's rampant. You'll need a big pot, those roots go down a long way.
Mine completely browned off last winter. I cut it right back to stumps and it's oK so far this winter but it's lost the lovely shape it was, just a blob now
What do you want to germinate Jinty?
Snow all gone. Took all the 'iffy' plants out of the cold greenhouse before it starts warming up in there. They can always go back in if neccessary but they're hardy and can take a bit of a frost. The splittings of Thymes I did in autumn have got roots coming out of the bottom of the pots already.
Theres a good technique if you have the access. Trailer with some boards on, pulled along in stages by car. Man on top of boards with hedge trimmer. Though the first year there was chainsaw input as well.
We did ours this morning, before the birds moved in. When we moved here it was so high the phone wires were caught in it. We take it back to garage eves height each year now, and it's thickening up nicely
Thats a thought
