    I'd be honoured to have bred any of those delights, let along ALL of them. 

    Beautiful, each and every one. Well done you.

    Devon.
  • Thank you 1Runny beak1

    i have loved them for many years they lift your spirits in the winter to remind you that spring is just around the corner. plus they are a good necter source for bees if they are out early.

  • Thank you every one.

    I will have some seeds spare later in the year so if any one is interested i will save you all some.  no guarantees but the fun of seeing the first flowers coming up after nearly 3 years of waiting is  so exiting!

    Once the seedlings appear how do you care for them?

    What a beautiful collection. My seedlings usually end up as a lot of dusty pinks. At least the pheasants leave those ones alone. They devour the white ones.

    Congratulations.image

  • HI maureen60

    I let them develop their first true leaves then i pot them up individually in 3 inch pots and grow on from there if i have some room in my veg plot i plant a couple of rows to grow on the roots must not dry out at all so i usually pot on on dull cool days.

    Hi Pansy face thank you i have white ones in the garden so far the pheasants have not eaten the flowers but the black ones seem to get chomped by somehting
