              You should make a killing selling on your Owcho & Friends ... seems they are plants which are trending for 2018 (according to an article I read earlier today) :thumbsup:

                    Ziggy, put those sempervivums outside, they grow big and flabby in the greenhouse.

                    And no body likes "big and flabby" house leeks;):snorky:
