Well I succumbed to my favourite spice and purchased a cinammon tree from Daley's. When we visited the place they had one in their covered area and it was a beautiful tree which can be kept smaller by coppicing. It has a lovely flush of colour on the leaf and though it may be difficult to harvest the quills of bark, the leaves can be used for flavour and simply crushed and sniff to make you feel better. Cinnamon is a spice I consume everyday. It is harder to find the true fine cinnamon powder these days as most of it is not a true type and I noticed it when my mouth reacted to the other type, which is freely available.
Do any of our members have this tree growing and if so, any hints would be appreciated.
