21-45 days is a long time if you're used to annuals. It's quick for a perennial grower like me

Any ideas?

one of the viburnums. opulus maybe

The hollyhocks will do it

They do make a good show. Mix something later flowering in as well though. After the wallflowers and the aquilegias go over you've either got a shambles or you cut them back and remove the wallflowers and it's all bare

If you sow them as soon as they're ripe they'll germinate quickly and you'll have small plants by winter.

But forget the window sill, they won't like being in the warm. They are hardy plants.Window sills are for germinating and protecting the non hardy.

I sow mine fresh outside or in a cold GH in midwinter. They never let me down

Anyone know what this is?
