I do love a #macro challenge 😂😍 There haven’t been many flowers on the #tweedia this year 😢 so this lone flower is really rather special! #blue #greenhouse #latebloomer #mygardentoday 💚💙💚

My #tweedia has not been as floriferous as in previous years but this one’s a youngster grown from a cutting. I might move the mother plant into the greenhouse to give it more warmth and light as it’s currently in a sheltered but shady spot in the garden. #containergarden #blue #blueflowers #mygardentoday 💚💙💚

This is a real #littlegem Bottom right is the original plant and top right is one of the seed heads it produced. The main picture is of the first flowers on one of the plants grown from seed sown in the spring. #homegrown #blueflowers #tweedia #bluetweedia #greenhouse #mygardentoday 21/08/2018

How beautiful is this? I snipped off a couple of seedheads in the autumn and left them at the base of the plant which is in a pot in my unheated greenhouse. One has now burst open to reveal this amazing display! #natureisbeautiful #tweedia #seeds #seedpod

How fabulous is that? Time to have a go at germinating them now then? 😀

It’s too beautiful to pull apart, Ian!!! I’ll split the green one open to see what the seeds are like inside and then I’ll have a go 👍 @bigemrg

I will! I bought the original plant from a local nurseryman so I’ll have a chat with him about the viability of germination. Watch this space @bigemrg

I couldn't resist buying this as it has such beautiful #blueflowers The label says it needs a sheltered warm wall or a cold greenhouse, so my plant will be living in the greenhouse from now on. #tweedia #greenhouse #mygardentoday
