Love these and there are quite a few popping up in the front garden.

I can see why...I've never grown them.

Enjoy them, Rose.

If you want them, Meadow, they're the easiest thing in the world to grow. I have blue and white but you can get pink too. And they are 'true' blues. Just sprinkle and leave, and then you'll have them every year from then on!

Wonder if it's too late now?

Worth a try. Not much to lose - they'd flower till the frost and the seed heads are gorgeous. You'd probably need to buy fresh seed for next year though if the seedheads didn't get chance to harden off before winter wet. But they're not very expensive if you have to buy some more for next year!

They are delightful and I love their simplicity. I planted a packet of seeds this year and am so looking forward to seeing them in flower - eventually!

They always delight me, W'Rose!

I love these too ... not many have appeared this year and those are white ... prefer blue!

I tried to keep the white seed separate last year, Shirley, and so have blue clumps and white ones. For the first time I have a couple of pink flowers too.

Anget, mine originally came from my daughter-in-laws Mum a long time ago. They are definitely a favourite of mine ...

I'm feeling quite envious now!!
