I keep meaning to look for more seeds, too...if you see plants at a GC they cost an arm and a leg! Outrageous!

isn't it annoying, the price they charge.

Almost £6 for a pot! Extortionate! Grrrrrrrr.............

I looked yesterday, but only saw the 'caerula' on its own. In the adverts to our right, there's one for 'bicolour' on its own, too!

I'm sure it was Suttons at SW yesterday too - but I had a mixed packet when I grew them, so I'll keep looking.
