Have they done well this year Amy? You kindly sent me some of your seed which I grew but the plants are only about 18 inches tall, is this the norm? The poor things had a bashing from the wind too when they were young, colours are lovely and I will be collecting see if I get cobs.

They are not as tall as usual Dawn the lack of rain didn't help , mine have got the silky tassles on so I should have cobs , If I have some and you don't I will save you some seed .. x
