@lamaisonbleueoleron I'm going to keep it in this pot this year - hoping to redesign some of the garden in winter to make more beds. It's very paved right now

Not sure the size of your pot but you may need to take a larger size to allow the roots to develop they'll start to grow quickly during the mild winter.

This is 'definitely' the same plant and 'definitely' not a second attempt because I killed the first one

This little seedling is barely clinging onto life at the moment, although a second leaf seems to be starting to form. Another seed I sowed a while ago has started growing.
