I can't sow anything direct, never ever see them again.
Have you lost all this years echium Lyn?
You're welcome to some of mine in the tunnel grown from your seed last year.
I'll swap for some more seed then I've got a succession going.
I still have our last year's ones in the green house, no seeds left as was hoping to get them from this year's plants, there still one huge one and a few tiny ones. The ones in the poly tunnel may not flower this year, plant this summer for next year's flowers.
Shame I lost the two biggest ones, they were taller than me. I am on an impossible quest to keep those going in our climate. But still I persevere. Just the thought of the thousand bees on them makes me press on with the imposible task.
yours should do ok in the front garden Hosta.
