@pelly if you sow them now for next year they get really tall and bushy Jane so will need good support but this is still going now albeit a tad smaller as I've continued to dead head them but the colour is superb 💙💙💙

@rachelbrooks they are very fiddly as don't like roots disturbing but all mine were OK that I did last year and potted on just need to be a bit careful with them and then give them some stakes to grow up before transplanting into garden 👍😃

@Keely OMG that's a huge triffid, definitely will have to pot up rather than sow direct! Thanks for the tip Keely ☺️😘

2w
comment
Keely

@jpea its not often people show the full size of plants and despite reading up I still didn't think it would get this big I've done too many again, so if you do some black ball we can swop if you like the blue one and it fits in with your planting theme, I plant mine in garden early October when I put bulbs in, seeds only take around a week to start showing 😃

2w
comment
jpea

@Keely that would be super, there's 300 seeds so there's definitely some for you, just let me know how many you would like, it says they grow 90cm high if planted in spring and 1-1.2m high if planted in autumn! with a spread of 45cm. Big Beastie's! Says they need staking so a few bamboo sticks required 😊 would you like me to sow them in pots now?

2w
comment
Keely

@jpea I only want 3 please Jeremy so don't go over board I'm putting 3 of my blue in but have about 12 will give mum a couple so if you want blue ones you are welcome to any leftovers I didn't think all would germinate was very sparing putting them in pot but all doing good so far, they have long roots so best start them in 7 or 9cm pot oppose to a seed tray 👍 😃 thank you

2w
comment
jpea

Ah, good advice, I'll do 12 too so there's enough for you, your mum and me, 4 seeds per 9cm pot and gradually thin out the weaker so we have the best left. I'll try to start these tomorrow or Friday, did you put that vermilion on top or just seed compost? I'll keep them in the greenhouse and water every other day (as advised by a friend) 👍😀

2w
comment
Keely

@jpea I used seed compost put the. Vermilion on top covered with a trifle clear pot that kept it damp and just sprayed it with water every few days if it dried out I did all mine in one pot then thinned out into 9cm pots when the seedlings were about 2" 😃 good luck
