@angiecrazycatlady You inspired me with your Lobelia - couldn't choose between them so I'll sow some of each 😂 💜💟💜

They are like dust the seeds are so small, so when you prick them out just take a small cluster of seedlings to pot on. So worth it though as they look great with other plants but even looks good in a pot on its own 😍

You won't regret it they are quite easy to grow, just be really careful when you open the seed packet and don't sneeze near them 😂😁😅

Very easy to grow 👍 I had mine germinate the first time round and outdoors as well. Keep meaning to sow them again but I couldn't decide on the colour. 😁😁

That's good to hear ☺ I'll sow some of each and see if that helps me choose 💜💟💜 @ublaszko

If you have any seeds leftover they might still be viable next year. I just bought some sweet pea seeds and I'm definitely going to have plenty leftover for next year or to share with others.

Another good thing about lobelia is that they last quite well into winter. Mine lasted until December 2 years ago and this year winter has been so mild that the display at Newcastle University is still flowering now.
