Very pleased to report that some of my cuttings have taken, there's new roots coming out of the bottom of 2 of my pots. That was super quick, I took some later last year and they took a while.

Thinking what else I could have a go at

Were the seeds any good? For some reason they have grown really well for me this year, both seed collected think a couple of years ago and a new packet.

Nice to see things flower when you've raised them Patsy. Got some in the garden hopefuly they will flower next  year

What have I planted here?

Could it be a verbena?

I find that if you cut the seed pods off they sometimes keep flowering. The seeds pods should be allowed to dry on the plant, the seeds should look yellow/brown in colour.

You might not get the same colour but you'll have a surprise next year. Wall flowers are really easy to grow from seed and produce great plants

The seeds do take a while to grow brown, I've got a cloth of gold that I will collect seeds from but this year I splashed out and bought some Fire king and a pink/purple one.

Like the look of both of varieties, would like a good show next year of them

Hi Matt, no don't think so. I've always waited til the pods have dried out and the seeds are yellow/brown.

I've sown a few seeds but still have to get my red and pink ones going, think there's plenty of time

If they are still looking perky that's a good sign. You should see some growth but the real sign that they have taken is to see the roots at the bottom of the pot.

I repot them when they are near to filling the pot. Depending how well they grow you might be able to plant them sooner. Just leave them alone and see how they do

I would have a go with them now Think I'm going to use mine for some sort of screening next year. The seeds were mixed so not sure if the flowers will be pink or white
