I don't have any now, no walls at the moment. In the past I've planted them directly in the soil, with the hope that they self seed themselves. I don't think they need to be planted that deep, think their roots are quite shallow. They are lovely plants one of  my neighbours has an established clump and it looks beautiful.

When you cut them back, you can be quite tough, they seem to respond well to that, maybe leave a few flowers so they can self seed

what licence to sell produce do I get?

I don't think you need a license. If you get into a local market, most ask you to provide a copy of public liability insurance

I think you should give them a hair cut after flowering to promote new growth.

Can't see why this shouldn't work, not tried it myself. Although might just be better collecting the seeds off them

Looking good Lyn, I'm resisting the temptation to have peek at mine, I only did them 2 days ago.

That's what I'm hoping is going to happen here Fishy, I had some in a previous garden and they started to  self seed well and forget me nots which are also on the grow list for later

When I was sowing seeds yesterday, I came across a very damp and soggy paper envelope which I stored some honesty seed pods. A lot of them had germinated, had roots, and their seedling leaves. Now potted up to grow on.

Early days for mine, but added candy tuff to my list of this years must have flowers

Think Gemma has a good point about the self seeding, it can take a while but the results are so natural. I'm just planting up my new flower bed and I'm already thinking about what will self seed and help me fill the space for free next year.

Are  there any plants that are doing well for you and if so maybe do some more these just to fill the space for now
