Thanks for advice and link. So, we have a variety - 3 in a compost bag, 3 in an 18" trench and an unknown amount buried in unknown area. All in a mega frenzy, no preparation etc, its sons way or no way. Fingers crossed for a harvest in 90 days!

Had a trip to Aldi for a replacement - came home with an Aquileia Yellow - well that's what the label said! It is in fact just what I wanted - a Bowles mauve!!! All the plants were labelled incorrectly, ooops!

As a non veg grower, I'm not sure the instructions make sense!

Grrr, just lost my post! 


Thank you both, he will love the glitter idea, the caterpillars, herbs (he likes recipes), we have lambs ears to share, and will also like funny shapes and names. 


He now has these from AldI... ok photo will be separate (think that's why I lost the post earlier).

This was my gorgeous Bowles mauve on 1st April.



Got back from a week away and this is it now.



Is there anything I can do to save it, apart from lots of watering? It's flowered nearly everyday for 18 months!
