Hi John,
That's looking good, is it an earlier photo? I am sure you have got the winter wraps ready for the cold spells.

Hi Bob. Taken about a month ago just before I put it in a large pot and moved it into the greenhouse. Grew it (and another less impressive one) from seed this year. Have always grown them just as annuals but my horticulturalist friend is here from Sydney, Oz and she suggested trying it as a tender perennial. Can't lose anything anyway. Tried fleecing a couple of years ago but up here it was no good. Got it under glass with a little time to spare. We are white over this a.m.
