Beautiful wallflowers Matty, fab colours, do you remember the name of them? I've only tried cuttings on the Bowles Mauve type but I guess it's the same.

I grew some Cloth of Gold one year and they did flower well in their second year

Yes will both will fine outside. I split a large clump of hardy geraniums and have potted them up to grow on a bit before I plant them

Hopefully they will do well for us,they've germinated well for you so I read that as a good sign. I loved my runners last year only got a few frozen ones left now, looking forward to cropping them already. I'm fairly new to veg but love growing the edibles. 

Think we got 9 small plants about inch high, they are in the cold frame.

Honeysuckle - what next?

I'd keep them in the modules until their roots are more developed. I had a go once and taking cuttings of honeysuckle but never had a go from the berries. Lovely plants

Picked up some these as small plants today, this will be my second year of growing runners. Didn't know that you can get self pollinating runners, the reviews that I've read said that they should do well in the poorest of weathers.

Has anyone had a good crop of them in the past?
