How Does Your Garden Grow?

I’ve only been away 3 days and I’ve returned to what looks like a triffid invasion, particularly the nicotiana sylvestris – they are huge and block out the view of the garden.  I have grown them before but they have never been quite so spectacular. I keep cutting back the leaves to give us room to get down the steps otherwise I can’t imagine how wide they would be.
