 a named Delph won't come true from seed, you'd do better to split or take cuttings if you want more. Seeds need to ripen on the plant, no good harvesting before that. Only drying takes place after harvesting

It was the label on the pot that made me think it was the original, Rob. 

Can I eat these?

It grows from own seed very well, as long as there's time left to ripen fully

I always think these, and plants like the Mirabilis, are quicker to flower from seed thanfrom over-wintering roots. I left S. patens in the garden last year, it's growing but nowhere near flowering. It's usually more advanced that this at the end of July

That looks very sad. I'd tip it out of that pot and see if it's pot bound. It looks like the pot it came in and it must have grown, or tried to grow, in that time. Then pot up as Obelixx suggests.

What exactly did you mean by MPC with good drainage? Did you add grit to the MPC or put some at the bottom?
