I’m really chuffed Jane. (Less so with your erysimum seeds. 2 germinated but then seem to have got burnt off when it was very sunny 😢) @pelly

You deserve to be and what a shame about the erysimum seedlings. Maybe they weren't as viable as the ones I collected last autumn. I'll send you some more later in the year, hopefully they will be more successful 👍👍

It is a shame Jane but I’d be happy to try again. Maybe I can send you some eucomis seeds, if they flower again? @pelly

It really is Val. And I don’t think I would ever have known if it hadn’t been for GardenTags and all you lovely people 😍 @valjones-hughes

Same here Jacqui, I grew it for the first time this year and would have thought it far too exotic for my wild Welsh garden if it hadn’t been for this great community! Big up GardenTags @ukgardentags

My bicolor is 39cm (15 1/2”) and the alba is a mere 27cm (10 1/2”) - you can just see it photobombing the bicolor in the bigger photo 😉 @rachelbrooks

Me too Val. I had seen them in botanic gardens (Cambridge I think) but it never occurred to me that I could grow them here, until I saw people on here growing them in pots (though typically it’s been so dry here they would probably have done fine in the ground this year 🙄) @valjones-hughes

I put my one and only into a pot too thinking was that if it worked out I’d get more next year. Going well so far!
