      Elsewhere @pete wanted to see my exotics, so here is a preview :heehee: of the bananas (and one very unhappy Travellers Palm) ... too many to fit on the capillary matting tray on my office windowsill

                  I have never heard of that one @CarolineL so will have to look it up. I have Hibbertia scandens (the Snake Vine) ... it is about 3-4 meters long now.

                        Hi @Victoria it appears to be quite a small bush, slowish, and the label warned it needs shelter. But our warm winter has (I think) allowed it to settle. I think I'll try and grow some other species from seed and see how hardy they are!

                          Fritillaria rubra opened alongside the lutea.

                          A cherry tree grown from seed by the grandkids, taken from the cherry trees on the green, i believe to be a wild cherry.
