Terrific photo Bob, makes me almost sad that I got shot of my Rex, but I never really had enough space for it.
I've no doubt we'll re-supply you when you get that bigger garden in the future Kev. icon_thumright

my little t-rex hasnt done very well at all since i planted it outside about 2 months ago.
The leaves look wilted and seem to have started going brown in the last few days. not sure why, unless it's had too much rain or fertiliser i guess? icon_scratch hope it bounces back.

I can't believe its too much rain as my little one has been outside in a pot for the month of May and its not been dry up here and it is growing okay, albeit very slowly, but I put this down to a lack of warmth.

I pulled up about 25 small pups this evening, but my first plant has now made it the 15 feet or so to my Butia. Also the first evidence of the coming up in the lawn :(
Best regards

About 60 maybe, really have stopped counting. The grooved one is much more prolific than the flat, deeply lobed leaf ones.... so far. Still I can handle this better than bindweed.... at the moment :lol:

It really doesn't matter, as within 2 years it will be in all those places :lol:

The only thing I have found, so far, that stops it is really deep, heavy, compacted clay. If you are on decent loam or peaty soil, it will just continue to run. It has now come up in my No1 base and shingle topped drive :ahhh!: It's at the edge of my lawn now, but it if appears further into the lawn, then disregard my first sentence about heavy clay.
Best regards
