They are lovely plants, one of mine was a root from Wilkinsons. The cuttings I've taken are doing well.

Great news Lorraine seems like they definately prefer an outside sowing and earlier than I thought.  Do you know what colour they are going to be?

 

Today I feel so happy....

I'm happy that the sun is predicted to shine here tomorrow today so will be sowing seeds and I've seen a delphinium pop up in a bed as a complete surprise.

What's eating my seedlings?!

I go for slugs and snails too, I've had similar things happen last year to mine. They can really do a lot of damage to young seedlings

just a lil' update

Always good to see pics David. Petunias look really healthy, I grow a lot of stuff in cold frames.

Bit of an after thought, I start pinching out when the seedling starts to look like a bit of a true plant, hope that makes sense

Mine had 4-5 true leaves and were looking very sturdy.

Hi both, I would say pinch out.  Grew them last year and pinched out a few to see what happened and then did the rest. They did grow into bushy plants with multiple stems  They put on a fantastic show and the large bumblies adored them.

I would just do a few at first to see how they get on, if all good you can always do the rest
