Angel trumpets

My brugmansias from Thomson and Morgan turned up today. They were half price in the T and M sale, and I couldn't resist them. Many years ago, when they were called daturas, I rescued one from a garden centre and it turned into the most wonderful beast with masses of white trumpets. They exude the most heavenly scent - very heady if you keep them indoors as I did in my south London flat. My new babies are a bit bedraggled after their transport in a box, but they look healthy and ready for a new life in Tottenham. They're tender so they'll need to overwinter in the study. I must ask Big Bro if there's anything else I need to know about them.
