Bought a pack of seeds last year and scattered them, in May, over the area I wanted them to grow. They started off well. We went away on holiday and when we came back, the seedlings had not been watered and they didn't appear to survive, so no flowers last year. However....... this year, the area is covered with beautiful little white and pink flowers. Absolutely delighted! Will be buying more seeds to put in other parts of the garden.

Unfortunately did not germinate
