Yes I am undergoing research to help our Beekeeper friend. My books do not mention its cultivation but I have other sources.

Maybe we get a small vase of honey one day, but my greatest pleasure would be that such agri-business means more flowers to us green fingered.

I will reply within few days.

I think you are right or very near - but for perfection (you know with these Germans :wink: ) it should be written as Tribulus terrestris
