    I'd be tempted to pinch them out - don't know what others think?

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !

    Depends on how big they are. if small pinch, so they make a good size plant before flowering, but if they are already multibranched and say more than 6 inch tall  I'd let them flower.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.
  • Hiya John, personally I think id do the same as Dove, because they may use up some energy now and therefore not have enough for next year.

  • Thanks all for replies, I will have a look at them in the morning.

    I grow a lot wallflowers from seed and have found that they can flower through out the year.

    It seems to me that after the flowers then comes the seed and the plant has done it's thing.  I would cut the the blooms off and any pinching off of the side shoots will make for a bushier plant
