Oohhh...mmeeeeee. I love them. I planted some seeds last autumn and they are still coming up now. Am I right in saying that they are very slow in growing? I have 6 which have taken but they seem to be taking forever. I mean, the seedlings only have 3 leaves on each at the most. Is that normal or am I doing something wrong???

Hi everyone

Not been on for a few weeks, maybe even months. I have my delphiniums that are in flower just now but....if I cut them back will they give a second show or do I leave them to seed??? Also, will they come true to the colour they are when they flower??? Thanks.

I agree with Obelixx about the fast forward button on the A to Z, although I don't avoid Joe or Toby.  They seem to be Marmite presenters.  The James Wong stuff is of little interest to me. I also find Carole Kirkwood a bit irritating.  Not sure why we need her to say "thanks Geoff" when a 20 year old clip of Geoff Hamilton has been shown! Some enjoyable bits on it though.

Im so glad Im not the only one thinking this lol

Oh NO.....I will not be using them then. I had used it once but had no idea what damage it was doing.
