I’m beyond excited this one is flowering but ones I have in a pot haven’t.So what have I done right and what have I done wrong.Should I move the ones in pot to border or persevere and see if they flower next year.

Gerardine,they do like to be congested in pots...I've never grown them in the soil.Also,they require feeding once a week throughout the growing season...One of my pots only ever produces 2 flowerheads despite the feeding.

Lovely colour, I’ve got a lilac one ( just uploaded in my photo’s ) in a pot but I prefer the colour of yours!

I love them all no matter the colour.Did you feed yours.?Your pot is smaller than the one i have my other ones in which is something they like I believe.
