HollyE. Maybe it will do next year as once they get going they spread really well.
Janey: That's a shame.

Have you seen how the lantern evolves around Christmas time? It turns into a kind of see through mess with an orange seed in the middle, quite exquisite.

I like these, I have collected some seed from a friends garden so hopefully I will have some lovely lanterns next year.

Lovely Gee. When is the time to set the seeds, I've never tried growing them from seed.

I was going to sow them and put them in the greenhouse in September but never got around to it. Hope to sow them (and others) sometime this week as I think we are due for some heavy rain :)
