    Yes, I wanted a few singles. I do like the big dinner plate varieties and Pom poms but these are that bit shorter and I can put them at the front of my borders.

    Nice one , you're way ahead of my overwintered ones. I didn't have room to start indoors this year (some outside influences made me grow way too many tomatoes instead ) so I waited until some had started sprouting before potting. The biggest ones are about 6-8 inches high and some of them are only just starting to poke shoots through the surface. The majority of mine don't normally start flowering until July at the best of times.
