thanks, I thought it was me trying too hard. They were only in about 1 litre pots and good compost, they were near my veg so may well have had the odd treat of tomato feed as my other half seemed to think everything would do better that way. I will keep everything crossed for this coming year then. Shall I leave in snall pots or bigger tubs or border???? They were 50p so I took a gamble. Yes yes yes I know I am cheap, all my posts are about being canny and making more or saving and I'm sorry!

Interesting post. I bought 2 bare roots this year, I got leaves and growth but no flowers and was disappointed with the size. These are in compost in an unheateffd greenhouse to over winter, what did I do wrong??

Do you think is too late?? Should I scrape back the soil and see or leave it be and hope it sets seed. I think I get greedy when I know I can multiply plants.

I'm sure these were perennial, I'm usually so careful to ensure that. They were right next to a perennial sunflower , a pink and a white with crimsen spots. It's raining otherwise I would be out with my torch looking for the name. 

looks like i ke I may be routing around at dads for seedlings if my 2 don't come through, I hoped they would add some height and something for the bees.

I'm not sure of the variety. They flowered till about October then just the flower stem. I will route around for the plant labels, gosh again I am amazed at the type of variety. I hope they do last through till next year!
