Just been out and measured the Echium. Is now 6ft 2ins tall. Bud stalks are getting longer and bigger.
Have got access to a ladder for any future measuring attempts? :)

Been out with the tape, and the echium is now 6ft 11ins. Not quite a foot since the last time. Must be the cooler weather here.

Actually, I'm absolutely flabbergurgled at the size of it. Do passersby knock and ask you about it, Willpar ??
