I do hope I'm posting this in the right place as I'm not entirely convinced the Chia fits into the vegetable category.

I grew some plants this year for the first time but to date they haven't shown any sign of flowering. With frost forecast in the coming week or so I guess there's no chance of them doing so now alas. They did get to about two feet six tall though and are strong sturdy plants. I'm tempted to dig up a couple of the biggest and move them to the greenhouse and see if they'll overwinter.

Has anyone tried growing them and been successful?

I've not tried it myself but I'd be very interested to hear how you get one! Chia seeds are so expensive, it would be interesting to know how well it can be grown in the UK.
