Re: Tour

Thank you for your comments. The upside down pots wereally off Amazon. They are OK but difficult to plant ...but I noticed a more expensive better quality version is available too. They look easier to use.

I have an inherited plant that's circa 40 years old. Probably older. I've only reported it once and it's at about 6 inch diameter. Maybe I should try a deeper larger pot and see what happens! I've a new younger plant that's faired well in the cold greenhouse this winter.
