Post #26738

Should I cut the blooms off from the ends of the flower stalks when they have died out, or should I just leave them to wither away?

My plant has blossomed faster than that of any other around here, mainly because my yard is quite sheltered, and doesn't get as many cold winds directly on to the plants as friends with gardens, or allotments.

Another wee question: How do I take seeds from this plant? I would really like to spread this one around in some little nooks-and-crannies here in our area.

It has been very easy to grow from a root-block which I was given last October.

All the best
