    Have sown a few Rosella and a few Sungold this morning, just trying an head start, but my head is telling me this is so wrong!

    We'll see!

    (VC! Can't believe Rosella is on your never to grow again list, these things just ROCK!)

    They tasted great and were very productive, but they split too easily for me. Maybe it was the weather - too hot?

    Yeah! Maybe so!

    But I honestly wouldn't do a season without them now to be honest

    Neither would I think the kids and grandkids would let me either!

    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

    OMG VC! 27? Bl00dy nuts......I've not down my 3 seeds yet! But that's all I will be sowing.
    I don't want to be juggling plants that I haven't got room for!

    I'm hoping to keep one plant of each - so that's only 9 and they'll fit on the shelf in the GH (and the bedroom windowsill beforehand).

    Now stop chattering and sow those seeds.
