I left this one in last year to see if it would come through winter ... pleased to see it did!

I just checked back to see when I planted my two ... March 2011 so they're about halfway through their lives then!

I love this colour,Shirley..most of mine are last years cuttings,and won't be long in flowering..:o)my Bowles Mauve is looking decidedly scraggy,but I have three cuttings awaiting their debut,in the growhouse :o)

But, mine is a very heavy clay soil Shirley, so that could have something to do with it!

Good insurance with the cuttings, Bloomer ...

We have Sussex clay, Ptg, but I try to remember to add grit and compost at each and every planting which has helped a lot over the years.

I love the wallflowers. My small plants are nowhere near ready to go out into the borders never mind flower. That one is a lovely colour. My Bowles Mauve is flowering well still.

I think Bowles Mauve must be made from strong stuff, Hb, as, like yours, mine keeps on flowering. On that Walllower are another ten or more blooms now - I hope this snow insulates them from any overnight frost.

Yes it's going to be a really cold one tonight I think. :o(
