I'm very excited as I planted one last spring and it just sat there. This year it already has some really good looking 'stalks' growing from it, so I am hoping for some lovely tall 'flowers' this summer!

that's good Karen i was hoping ours would this year but there's no sign from ours :-)

Well, mine was about this size last year. Now it is about twice this size and much less 'tidy' and 'fresh' looking, but it is definitely going to flower :)) So perhaps you may need to wait another year. Be patient, it will be worth it!

i don't mind the wait, like you say it's worth it :-)

..and with you being in surrey, you may well get some flower stems later this year! :))
