    They're annuals but they usually self seed. I collect some just in case

    I think they are an annual Iain - so you will either have to grow them from seed each year, or buy new plants.  They will not come back year after year.  I've grown them from seed before - they weren't that tricky.

    Very easy to grow from seeds. I grow them every year for the bees, they love them.

  • hi everyone, Cerinthe is an annual and needs to be sown each year. The seeds are large and easily sown. I collect seed each year and sow some late (as of now) and more in spring. It's a beautiful plant and looks great filling a planter. Enjoy.

  • I've grown them from seed this year for the first time and had a lovely show.  I have now collected the seeds and have a lot of spares.  Anyone who wants a few, send me a message with your address and I'll mail you some.
