Just restarted gardening as my hobby. Hoping to turn the front garden which is in the town Centre into something special. Help may be required.

Lobelia cardinalis 'Queen Victoria'

If you look at the bottom of the plant, you'll see some stems coming from the base without any flowers. Some may even have their own roots. If roots, just cut from parent and replant in a pot and overwinter, if no roots, cut low down them pop in moist gritty pot of compost and put in a cool bright but not direct sun spot, coldframe, or window cill until it roots. Then do as above. Pot on in Spring to grow on, them plant out 😁 it really isn't difficult. Be brave Dave!! 😂😂😁
