I have occasionally thought about growing some in a pot, I suppose the way some people panic as if it is going to eat our children then our house, I know the dangers but it is an attractive plant. Any thoughts?
You've asked if it's " silly " I 'd say yes , it is.
As Einstein said ... “To keep doing the same thing and expect different results is insanity.”
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
Should your neighbours discover that you have it, even (for now) in a pot, within seven metres of their property, you could find yourself liable to court action due to it having a detrimental effect on their ability to sell their house.
I just don’t understand why you want to even consider keeping it. It strikes me as the botanical equivalent of keeping vials of zika virus culture in your kitchen fridge.
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
And how would you stop seeds going everywhere? This wins my prize for silliest idea today.
