i posted a while back that i'd seen a beautiful amazinglyscented plant, after researching i found it was  matthiola incana, but i was told at gc stocks aaren't perennial, i got some seeds, which have germinated,i also bought come bedding plants which have just started to flower, how can i ensure the any stay year after year? ever so sorry if i'm repeating myself, brain of a small fish!

I have seeds for matthiola perennis, which is described as a short life perennial
