    sow in a gritty compost and leave them outside until Spring when they should germinate. 
    Then wait a number of years before they flower.

  • Thank you I will enjoy the wait!

    They may, or may not, be the same as the "mother" plant.
    You've got more patience than I.

    They grow very quickly and germinate well, I sowed these in January ‘ 17 indoors,  I put them in 5” pots last year and have neglected them this year so they’re still in the 5” pots, had I potted them on this year they would have been even bigger. I will report now into 6” pots ready for overwintering.  This was just one seedling in each pot, they have doubled some even trebled from the base.

  • Thank you for that inspiration. They are such a rewarding flower to have in the garden.

    Are those the seeds from my garden?

    Sorry for any confusion.

    @hostafan, no you gave me plants, and I got those seeds from somewhere else.
