The sliver of dark red on the edge is wonderful isn't it. I've always fancied having a go at these. Think I might use the greenhouse next year to get them going. It's not much use for vegetables this year for sure!

Have a look at Surrylad's and Meanies Eucomis. This one stopped itself growing for weeks. I think they will be better next year. If you are going to have a go Karen buy better bulbs than I did...

I am pleased it got this far I had almost given up.
