Lizzie -  Thompson and Morgan do laurentia seeds (its called isotoma too) - maybe you could get some delivered to your Norfolk cottage in time to sow next year?  Its one of my favourite (deer proof) summer annuals, and it always performs well here.

Work full time, but spend as much of the weekend as I can get away with in the garden .....come rain or shine.  Love it
