Big flowers ?

This is our gunnera. look at it now and then in a month or twos time. Every year it gets bigger and bigger and hides this tatty caravan that we use as a store all.





Dave the bee keepers bee's have been paying it a great deal of attention these last few days.

I love gunnera. Such an impressive plant when in full leaf. A real hang over from the Jurassic period - all you need is a dinosaur or 2 lurking nearby. I swear you can HEAR it growing. Love Lizzie

I'd love one but they are classed as invasive here and so you are not encouraged to plant them :(
