HI, If you grow from seed soak in water if the seeds are big unless you are setting straight away after removing from the plant This is how I did it.. put some grit in with the compost. Then grit over the top. The first year they will grow a long root . the seconed year a bit of a leaf . they will slowly form a tuber. It took a while for mine to make a small plant . it hasnt flowered yet. So be patient- they say its a virtue , don't they - patience?
The leaves I leave on the plant after flowering . I too suround with something like a cranes bill or Baby's Breath. - Gypsophala . It will grow through it and it will be hidden .
