There is a phormium in the second tulip photo, to the right of the eucalyptus, still recovering from the freeze a few years ago.

 Some tulips I had from Parkers as a freeby. Short stems though. They look like they are drowning in a sea of forgetmenots.

 On the left are grown in Levington. On the right are two grown in J Arthur Bowers. All potted the same day from a batch of plugs of primula fire dragon sent from Parkers.  If I hadn't split the batch, I would have blamed Parkers.

Others from this batch that are now in soil in the garden have recovered and are flowering.

No, all of mine are deep blue. They originally came from a packet of Sarah Ravens labelled as deep blue. Not many in the original packet of seed, but as they are big seeds, I collected a hundred or so and then sow in plug trays individually. Very easy.

No they never self seed. i collect the seeds as they are turning brown or black, they squeeze out of the pods. I sowed them last Sunday, they are just starting to germinate.
