A nice sunny flower. I'm going to try seeding directly out and see what I get. Would be lovely to have them as well.

That's what I did, over 2 years ago, Gt...and now I have them seeding themselves happily!

Oh yes please, Alice! After a sunny day yesterday, we're back to rain and gloom today. :-((

Glad to know that bees like them. :-)))
