They won't produce lemons for a few years but who cares they were cheaper than flowers which we have to replace every year.

Aldi and Lidl must be into tiny sprigs of plants together. At least mine had name tags on them.

This was our cactus this morning. May 5 th it was only the dark green you could see. Its like a triffid, going to take a lot of "leaves" off as they cross over to make new plants. Be nice if we have fruit but don't think so,
