Very interesting, Hilary! It looks like you just stuck them in the ground! It must be a nice bit of color in the off season.
This is one of the things going in your goody bag if you haven't got them already??
Do you think the would grow here? I have hostas, but I've never grown these.
Well, they are a shade plant here and like a drop of moisture
(lol, i've just read the thread re your flood situation, do hope you're OK) Tomcats don't like getting their feet wet ;)
I think it'd be worth a go.
Thanks, Phil, I'd love to try them. Yes, Tom Cats aren't fond of wet feet, and this one has been hissing and grumbling a bit. He's been sloshing around all stiff-legged, but that could just be the arthritis in his knees!
OK, i've just got to get the seed out of the berries :)
