Wow! Iain, that is beautiful! how big does the clump need to be before you can divide it?

Hi Kef

I have just looked through my photos and afraid that I didn't take any picture of it! What was I doing?! I will take some photos of it next year if it survives the house move.

I got my plant in April last year in a 9cm pot. It didn't flower last year. This year it had two flowers. I'm in west yorkshire and the plant is in a shady spot.

Thank you Lyn for your advise. I have put them on the windowsill in the living room. It should keep them nice and snug.

Yviestevie & CT, good luck with yours!

I have just taken delivery of some tiny cell type Penstemons from T&M. I am going to pot them on into some 5cm pots. Will they be ok if I leave them at a sheltered  corner outside for about a month? I should be moving into a new house which comes with a greenhouse in a month's time. Lucky me! I am planning to move them into the greenhouse when we have moved. Hope the weather is kind until then...

Hi Dancer, I was saying that please could you resend your address? There are some big gaps in your first message.  Think PM is playing up.

Hi fellow gardeners,

I have just collected some seeds from my Himalayan Poppy (Blue) and are just wondering if they will come true? and how long will it take to flower growing from seed? There are a least a hundred seeds from just one flower bud! I am really chuffed, as this is the first year it has flowered and it was a beauty. Let me know if anyone would like some seeds. I have a lot to spare thanks.

Are you sure this is a pink? It looks massive!! My pinks are 1/5 of that size.
