Ive not been successful with germination. I love them as a plant they are in my top ten. What I decided to do this year as I wanted more colours was to buy a collection of 12 mixed plants, they do self seed freely so when they do I was going to llift the seedlngs to bring them on.

phew I was feeling a bit guilty there obviously a controversial subject. I dont have hedgehogs in my garden were terribly bothered with rabbits so weve chicken wire right round. Do birds eat the big fat brown slugs a friend told me they dont.I do use enviromentally friendly pellets.Im planning some sort of natural water feature to encourage frogs Getting on top of my slug population is my aim this year. Im going out shortly to sort out a few more!!

Wildlife pond advice

it doesnt need to be same depth all over i did over a metre just to one side and a metre on other. mark out the shape you want with your garden hose dig down to the depth you want and when youve done that back breaking bit(I was lucky our neighbour had a jcb and felt sorry for us werent we lucky it reached into our garden) Then you do a shelf within your shape for sitting baskets of water plants about 25cm down, make sure its wide enough(and flat enough) to hold your baskets or they may tip into the pond! this shelf only has to be to one side just decide on yor planting and of course this shelf is also for wildlife to get in and out of the pond I softened my edge with stones of all sizes this also helped wildlife. I used boulders to soften the edge of the pond. Another tip is to use a long spirit level put a plank of wood across the finished levels before you put down your liner, if its not level you'll see the liner which is unsightly and it will get sun damage.Do it again when the liner is in you can always pad up an area with sand to get levels right. It is so important to prepare the pond carefully as it can look awful if not right . Good luck Im so jealous
