I love these Kerry, they're huuuge,I grew a load from seed years ago, but one year the greenfly did a right number on them so I'm growing some more this year. Mine are McKanas hybrids on the packet, not giants, hoping they're one and the same! @kez001uk

@gardengimp they’re amazing looking things aren’t they 😍 I think they’re the same as these, just usually T&M call their stuff slightly different names to confuse us all 😂 greenfly were a pain on these last year. Had to cut them back so early just to try get rid of it 😐 hope your next lot fare better 🤞🏻

They're little buggers aren't they 😬 Still not germinated so got a way to go yet. Gardening has dragged me kicking and screaming by the balls towards the concept of patience. I get it now 😁 @kez001uk

comment
kez001uk

@gardengimp 😂🤣 it’s a hard lesson to learn though isn’t it! Rewarding when things are a success 😛 I’m having trouble getting any aquilegia to germinate the last few times I’ve tried 🙈

14w
comment
gardengimp

It is rewarding, I make sure I tell anybody who visits I grew them myself 😃 I seem to remember germinating the last ones down the side of the house, just left the to the elements, no greenhouse. When they get too much sun the seeds don't make good contact on the drying compost. I never have the self seeding problem, I'm too much of a dead heading ninja @kez001uk

14w
comment
kez001uk

@gardengimp and so you should! Oh that might be worth a go then. I’ll try them outdoors 😁 so glad there’s another deadheading freak around 🤣 I try so hard to leave things to seed but can’t stand the untidiness 😆😆😆

@gjones they’re such a great mix 😍 some flowers come out huge but others small. I think they should be large but there’s too many in the pot now 😅
