@ublaszko I tried working out which one it is from looking back at last years. They’re actually quite dark and have a fair bit of ‘shimmer’ but nothing like the buds 😖

Nope but I only bought it in June. I was hoping I would get some flowers towards the end of the summer but I don't think so now. I bought them as a young plant from Wilko so theoretically should be ready to flower this year.

They are moderately easy to grow from seed, but unlikely to flower until year 2, but worth a go 👍

Did you cut them back straight away after the first flowering? Never got mine to flower twice.

@pelly they seem to come through faster on second flush. Just glad they returned for us 😁

@jeatacake I did. As soon as they lose their flowers I cut the spikes but after they’re all gone I cut everything down to soil level. Had new leaves within a week or so 😛

Cut the flower spikes at the very bottom Jeff, that should encourage new ones @jeatacake 👍👍
