I grew from seed this year dwarf delphniums (magic fountain) and dwarf hollyhock (queeny) they seem to be doing well and was wondering will they flower this year and will they survive the winter as there is mixed reviews on if they will survive or not. Anyone had any experience of them they are both supposedly perienial and flower in first year.
