I have got some dying flower heads from the garden centre of the pincushion flower and wondered if it was too late to sow them to flower this year?



there are several plants with this common name. do you know its latin name. I googled it and it suggested astrantia, scabiosa and others that i cant remember now. down to my age tut tut.
