        Some of our seedlings seem to have disappeared over winter but I'll have another look.

            Bless your heart, Pete. Stay nice and dry and wait until it stops raining - I'm in no desperate hurry ....


            ... but rumour has it, it will stop raining over yours at approximately 0245hrs :whistle: :heehee:

                Did you manage to get hold of one M? Neighbour has one overhanging my fence which seeds itself in my border so I'm forever pulling them up.

                    I have the golden leafed form, I bought it as a young plant from EBay for about £3, worth a look.

                    When mines put on a bit more growth this summer I'll take a cutting if you like and see if I can get it to root :)

                      I've got one or two small ones if you want them? Send me your address and I'll pop them in the post.

                        Sorry M I lost this tread some time ago.
                        I'll have to have a look around again, I often give them a squirt of weed killer :redface:
