In colder areas you may wish to cover seedlings or keep in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. This will self-sow in well-drained soils.

Delivery was swift but the items arrived limp and mildew looking. Tried to revive them but lost them all.

Very disappointing - had to give 1 star to complete this!
