Toni Velardo: “We first tried them about five years ago in the allotment but they kept growing along the ground instead of up. I had a feeling they needed a hotter environment, so I planted about half a dozen seeds in the greenhouse. Normally my wife cuts them before they get too big. I think this one was hiding behind the leaves so it got the chance to grow longer.”
