Hey, WW

I've just been and had a look and I've got a flower bud

and I saw my first blue butterfly of the year

It would be good to see what colour they are WW.

They'll be late though. Those in the garden are in flower and not a hint from the babies

They are slow, some friends gave me seedlings last year and they're still very small, there won't be flowers this year.

I've got my first flowers this year from Touchwood seed. Sowed late 2012 or early 2013. 

Can anyone identify a seedling?

I would say tree as well. If you excavate in the pot you may find evidence of a seed

They're really easy from seed yarrow

You can either sow them fresh, they germinate very quickly. Or outside in autumn which is what I used to do. Or in a cold GH in midwinter which is what I do now. They germinate in spring.

Touchwood is good for a wide variety of colours and  species

With most things it would have worked PP. It may still be OK if it likes where you've  put it

Is this trying to die?

I'd pot them on and if they're totally pot bound, which is likely fif they've been thrown out, I'd take my gardening dinner fork and tease out the roots a bit. Then I'd give them a bigger pot and some gritty compost, a good watering and leave them alone til they dried out before they got more water.

It's a lovely plant but very fussy about soil and atmosphere. Moisture but not wet.

Mine lasted 2 seasons

You could try cutting some of the leaves off so there aren't so many to support
