Good morning, everyone.
I have some salvias that have survived the winter. Last years S patens and S. microphylla both grown from seed, have survived. The microphylla is shooting from a woody base, and the patens formed tubers and is growing from the tuber like a dahlia.
I have planted more patens from seed, because I just love that intense blue. I saw some amistad last year and i was impressed but I loathe paying £10 for a plant that i know will die in the winter,and theres only so much I can cram in the greenhouse.
Mrs Garden I have PM'd you
