Errrrr it's already a thread so a bit late for that.

Incidentally the final bud opened today to give a group of seven.
There was also quite a good scent of liquorice permeating the greenhouse, confirmed by MrsG.

The plant of the month article is on the website rather than the forum, surely they don't have to be entirely original?

By liquorice do you mean aniseed-flavoured liquorice, the usual sort we get here? Liquorice itself has a more subtle scent.

I used to chew liquorice root and that's the scent I recall :wink:

Oooooh.

How much are the Nananthus vittatus Marketing Board paying you?

Hopefully, I will have forgotten by the next seed-sowing season. Though I do have a little space, still.
