I had real trouble with them last year.  In the end I gave up and put the pots aside.....two weeks later i had loads of seedlings.  So i think they are just obstinate

Sounds like you had a great time Dove - so glad she has caught the gardening bug....no looking back now

Mr Chicky and I went GC visiting together this afters.  He is a very bad influence on me.  He bullied me into buying some more pulsatillas, a tree peony (which he is going to look after, as my current ones -freebies from mags- are alive but not flourishing), a potentilla, an iris and some aubretia.  I must take him with me more often

 Just having morning cuppa on bench outside front door - still in pink fluffy dressing gown- and our local councillor came to call.  Nothing for it but to brazen it out and talk "politics" for 20 minutes.  

....and now, it is time I got going, before anyone else comes to call

No agastache here yet either Yvie - it is a daily quest to check.  Keep me posted on yours - it gives me hope to know I'm in good company.  I have (?had) black adder, blue boa, blue fortune and some I grew from seed......none are showing, and I can't believe i have lost all 20 of them
