Has anyone ever grown these?  They are in the new GW mag and look gorgeous. Are they as easy as Carol claims?

    dead easy to grow. I couldn't get them to last more than one year, but I'd happily buy new each year.

    I think they need a fair amount of heat. I couldn't get them to flower, then lost them.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Thank you for the tips. I have a very hot front patio (when it is sunny!) and everything else just bakes to death. Hopefully these bulbs will survive.

    Inspired by this thread , I popped into B&M Bargains and picked up a bag of 20 bulbs for 99p
