    Two things to consider

    Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum' is a cultivar of something not so purple and may not seed reliably purple


    It's a bit late to start them and expect much this year

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    Agreewith Nut, too late in year. Start next Spring, with heat, they are not hardy. When they are large enough to go outside, remember to bring them back in, during Autumn.They will not survive in a cold greenhouse [ in Sheffield anyway ], so either indoors, or a heated greenhouse.

    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

    S.Yorkshire/Derbyshire border
