You can take cuttings from the Bowles Mauve and I does seed but I have never tried taking and growing from its seed. I don't know about the Armeria.

I think its been a hard couple of years even though they are part of a big chain of GC's, more franchises than ever but I suppose the money from them kept them going through the last year......at least the plant quality is good and their returns policy on sick plants under guarantee seems to work.
The cafe is expensive but odd times you get bogof's with their loyalty card and we had a sunday lunch in february, it was much nicer than I expected
