i posted a while back that i'd seen a beautiful amazinglyscented plant, after researching i found it was matthiola incana, but i was told at gc stocks aaren't perennial, i got some seeds, which have germinated,i also bought come bedding plants which have just started to flower, how can i ensure the any stay year after year? ever so sorry if i'm repeating myself, brain of a small fish!
Hiya rosemummy. I would regard them as half hardy annuals, so you need to save seed and start again each year.
for the fag ends of the aristocracy.
thanks pd, have you seen the 2 plants in bot gdns? big woody srems, look loike they've been going a while
Beth Chatto has a white one she got from Dixter that acts as a perennial, but it is currently out of stock.
I have seeds for matthiola perennis, which is described as a short life perennial
