Patience was rewarded, and by the beginning of summer these looked wonderful with a smattering of dusky pink cosmos. Will certainly be sowing again.

Struggled a bit in my garden

These plants did not like it in my garden much - they seemed to succumb to a pest that affected the whole plant health, not sure if this was some sort of carrot fly as the carrots I'm growing nearby (albeit in a raised bed) are unaffected. Likewise the Amni also grown from seeds and growing in the same flowerbed are OK too. I pulled them out some weeks ago when I was clear they weren't going to come to much.
