Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

@lostgardener I don’t know to be honest as I’ve only had some since last autumn but I hope so as I have some in my long border that I want to spread 😊

Have you grown them in this way before? I just threw them down where I wanted them last year and they did well and lasted ages - I was pleasantly surprised. Love the 'avalanche' ones & am going to have 'Golf bright mixed' this year -using the technical sowing method of chucking them on the soil 😁

Hi @anges Yes I grew some like this last year, although only have 1 that survived, currently in border. I find if I plant seeds straight in border they never survive. Think they get eaten by slugs!

I started mine months ago. They're still flowering. Right now, I'd say just stick em out in the position you want them in. They look tall enough
