Love 'em Hywel. Just done a new blog & avatar. I have been "breeding" them from a plant my mother gave me many years ago and giving them to my friends who love them, too. They are all over the town! :>))

Unfortunately, I am now having trouble propagating from it, which is very disappointing, having done so for so many years. It simply will not root but I am persevering in the hope of getting some new plants before the old one dies.
