That is them, Victoria, I didn't think I had any germinate.

I hope everyone that I have sent the seeds to can get them going.

I had these germinate from the pot I put your seeds in Lyn...(not the cosmos thing)

 I'm not sure if they are aconitum, does anybody know? Reason I'm a bit unsure is they came up a lot like astrantia seedlings do...and some other things came up in the pot but got eaten when very small...

I think you are correct Victoria, I didn't think I had any germinate but just found this tray.

they look like they are growing from little bulblets, are yours like that,did i send you those seeds last year?

Hosta, they probably won't flower next year, what are plants called that take two years to flower, Bi annual is it? 

I would think at that size they would be safe and better planted out. Those of mine are now about five ft tall, planted out last Autumn, but I lost quite a few in the winter. They will be about 8/10' next year with the blooms. Just put lots in, then if you lose a few it won't matter, and if you have too many you can pull them out.

When they self seed, leave them in, they seem to be tougher growing like that.

The Japanese anemones.

The white is Honorine Jobert

Dark pink Is Bressingham Glow

pale pink is Seranade

Big group are the old bog standard rampant ones, that are very well behaved here though.

the Scabious, I am not sure what they are called, I still have some seeds though, from last years flowers, or I could save some from those for you.
