Everyone should grow a really humungous giant decorative at some point in their life. My advice would be don’t leave it too long, as you’ll discover the unadulterated fun you’ve been missing and regret not doing it years earlier. If you’re up for giving it a go, then don’t shilly-shally around, grow the Big Daddy, Sir Alf. You can almost hear the plant groaning as it wrestles to build up those enormous buds. When they finally burst it can take a full week for a bloom to fully develop, changing colour as each layer of petal covers the next. Great fun.
