They don't take long...
... to get long.
"The Triffid" was snailed to death during its last winter in the greenhouse; this, its replacement, was bought on the 12th of Nov in Hexham. It was potted within days and took until "now" to show sign(s) of life. It has taken just a touch over 3 weeks to reach full Triffidhood.
A photo of it in all its glory is, of course, inevitable; since it's the 1st "double" I've met.
DAMN! Autocorrect it turned "Snailed" into "Nailed", just as I hit Publish.
