Hi galest, had a quick look at the cleome plant, looks like I had a lucky buy, I'm not sure I even paid any money for them, they might have been a gift ...........even better.I have accquired that many seeds. Do you know if they attract pollinators? Thanks for the advice about collecting the seeds.
Interested in your experience of larkspurs being hardy. I still have some annual scabious plants that I grew from seed last year, still alive even after being covered in snow for a week. New plants/offsets have come from the original so will cut them the plant back when the time is right.
Thanks for the picture Gardengirl, it is great to see the seeds coming up. I moved my first sowings into the cold frames a couple of weeks ago, I'm hardening them off in the frames and then I will prick them out. Mine do look a bit leggy, but I have to say what do they do in nature? I'll bury their leggy stems when I pot them on.
