    They seem very keen on outdoor learning and have some planters for veg but nobody seemed to have time to keep on top of them, which is why I volunteered. They are now looking at working gardening into the curriculum.

    If you go for the impomnia just collect the seed towards the end of September. They tend to drop it too if you let them and you will probably get them coming up in subsequent years all on their own.

    Great to know you're trying to get gardening on to the curriculum, children love learning about how things grow and getting their hands dirty.
    Clematis are perennial climbers, difficult to find  a blue-blue, but the following may be worth investigating;-
    C. macropetala 'Lagoon' - flowers in Spring, doesn't need much maintenence, lovely seed heads later in the year
    C.Multi-Blue  - flowers Summer. Prune lightly in early Spring

    If there's a space at the bottom of the climbers you could try lithodora diffusa heavenly blue? It's a low growing spreading plant but the flowers are definitely blue! (Also likes acid soil). Have a look on the RHS site for a picture  :)
