As a recent logger-on to G.W. I love the on-site videos. Just viewed pricking out seedlings with Monty. Its great having experts in my living room. Molly Mac.

Bought about 20 barerooted strong wallflower plants and they are now in.

Grew some from seed in the Spring which did flower and are still looking very green and healthy.

I think the thing to remember is that these plants can grow in walls so don't a good quality soil, I've just planted mine in soil ( if you can can call it that) that is very dry and full of tree roots,but I'm confident that they will do well

Wallflowers, are they hardy? I planted some about two yars ago and I haven't seen them since they died that Winter.

How do we prune wallflowers to ensure healthy growth after spring bloom.
We have had a wonderful display but wonder how and when they need to be cut back.
