What a lovely picture. Those Lavatera are fabulous. Bet you will be saving seed from those PP. I shall definitely be looking out for those. Did you grow them last year for flowers this year.

It looks fabulous Carole . we were in a garden centre at the weekend where we found a packet of Lavatera seed I'm hoping the seed will keep for next year ,do you think it will or will it be to old ?

I think it should be fine Amy I have sowed seed when its over a year old and it has been fine, good luck with it and I will send you some from mine when they have finished;0)

Thanks Sandra, ther are another three pots of Lavertera on the patio area which you can't see on the photo, its going to look awfully dull when they eventually finish flowering;0(
