They're hardy, they don't need protection. They start growing when the weather is right, slow down if it gets cold and flower when they're ready. No problem
They've arrived, thank you addict. Enough to sow some now and some in spring
We've only just finished cutting some of ours, it looks a bit of a mess. Ideally we like to cut before it gets saturated.
