Hi Verdun, yes that's right they are fantastic talking points in the garden.
I have always kept mine in a large pot so that I can put it in the green house over winter, perhaps this has restricted the growth but it still gets high enough for me.
im just so pleased that I have managed to grow it for five years now, but although I have collected seeds this year I would hate to lose the main plant.
I understand they seed all over the place but I've yet to recognise a seedling, I think I've dug them up by mistake.
i have seeds in pots (a few for luck) and if I'm lucky To grow them I will have to nurture them for a few years before they are as big as this one now.
Gardening is as much a concern as it is exciting.
