    My 3 that I dug up in November have had quite considerable die back on the stems. Still about 2/3 ft of firm stem left though, so hopefully now there in the GH they start too grow back. At least the 4 cuttings I took have rooted nicely.

      last year was the first time I have grown Brugs, wasn't convinced they would even survive. Two 8" plants turned into 3' standards with lots of huge blooms only a matter of months later. Was considering buying seeds, but seems a lengthy process, if they grow at all.

      Seeds are unlikely to flower the first year, its possible but not probable.:biggrin:
