    I went to the village plant sale this morning and came back with a few choice plants for very little money (ie a large potful of Crinum for £3.50 etc). But the plant that I am most pleased about is a plant that I lusted after from the first time that I saw it at Oxfords Botanic Gardens and I immediately sought it out - easily found in California and South Africa but not here in the UK. Over time it got forgot about until today when I saw it on the table, thought to myself "no way", checked the label and rapidly parted with a whole pound!
    So this year I am finally trying to grow Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender'.
    What it should look like...............

      Well dine @longk .
      I've got a couple of the more normal Plectranthus ( plain shiny green and variegated ) but I've never seen that one.

      That's because it's like rocking horse poo outside of warm countries!
