We've had an unusually wet year too, although I'm in almost the driest part of the UK

well southern Georgia despite being zone 8b much like alot of the UK... it tends to be alot hotter and wetter.
we get 55-60 inches of rain a year, and 6months out of the year it is 90-95 degree averages. The winter is inconsistent as well it might be 28degrees at night and than be 65 or 70 during the day...

nice long growing season, but it has its challenges

everything is for sale.
yeah, i think i have this one going for $4.50 us funds...
i know i know, breaking the bank.
In my experience mailing to the Uk, it's best to fill a small box so to speak... Might be like 8-10 plants.

yeah, xerophyte means it needs little water. I hardly ever watered mine, of course now in the ground it gets plenty.
