Ammi Majus, Ammi Visnaga, Salvia Viridis Blue Monday, Agastache - where are they thriving for you?

...and what are you growing them with? I have a glut of seedlings and have run out of obvious places to put them. Would be interested to know which of these you are growing and what with?

    They aren't thriving anywhere on my garden huh,!!

    :)

    Wondering if I can learn from this @Nanny Beach  or perhaps I should just keep them in pots...

    I was given a single small ammi majus seedling a couple f years ago and planted it in abed that gets full sun to midday (10am UK time) and then again from 6pm when we're approaching summer solstice time.  That baby thrived and I now have 3 or 4 growing in that bed along with bergenia, hemerocallis, hellebore, sanguisorbia, rodgersia, a hydrangea paniculata, a clematis and a baby from my Kiftsgate rose from my last garden.

    I don't have that salvia but I will have agastache - when I get around to sowing the seed.

    Thank you @Obelixx. It's useful to read what else is happy in that bed - that helps me work out where it might go. Random Q but do you stake your ammi?

    No.  They are supported by surrounding plants.

    Ammi majus is an annual, it shouldn't be coming back after flowering.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    I have several salvia blue viridis seedlings grown from seed ... usually pop them in gaps in the border... haven't decided this year, probably border as per, but maybe put some in pots...

    I'm assuming it has seeded @punkdoc.

    I haven't any no luck with ammi. I would love it to self seed.
  • CamelliadCamelliad SussexPosts: 402
    Do they self seed freely @punkdoc?

    @JanieB that's a good idea actually. Perhaps I'll keep some growing in pots for now and decide later. Is their growing habit bushy or quite sparse?
