We grow our mint in a container to keep it under control. Learned that lesson the hard way especially after not taking advice on how to keep it under control.

We've planted two passion fruit vines that died. We planted two more. One survived just to die the next year. We planted rosemary that just, 'karked it' for no reason. We've got other rosemary plants though.

Our chilli plant is this year's success story. The chillies it produces are the hottest we've ever had. Useful for cooking, I couldn't eat them raw !

Pansies are our biggest problem they self seed all over our garden among all the veg patches. My bigger problem is all of my Monarch little ones have migrated off my Swan plants and found happy sites in wifey's sweet corn stalks that are in need of clearing out........
