I've only just sown mine, I'm very late this year. think they would be ok to go out. If they are inside or greenhouse etc I would harden them off a bit

I'd leave them grow a bit more before pinching out, they look healthy

Maybe the slugs had them? Or they rotted off in the clay soil? Could you add a little drainage if you plant any more? Best of luck with them

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?

Posted: 03/04/2015 at 10:06

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.
