    My son bought me a pack called  'Grow your own'. the leaves very like another plant that we are not supposed to grow!

    I’ve got 2 trays of Cleome never pricked/ or planted out, must get round to it in prep for this weekends rain.

    *Astrantia* at least you tried to label it :D
    My mum gave me one a couple of years ago and I didn't know they were prickly,  but they are very pretty mine was white with a pinky tinge.

    But they are prickly @Lyn. they can do it themselves.
    pottiepam what was that then go on you can say it.

    Yes a cleome, very pretty... and spikey on the stems, ouch!
    I haven't grown them for a couple of years but when I did some of my daughters school friends did whisper in hushed tones "Is your mum growing weed?" 😳

    That’s what I hoped for but they never did, they’ve not even got to the prickly stage, hopefully they’ll go on till autumn.
