    Hi Laetitia

    I love these, your examples look fantastic. Marvellous thing to grow just after Christmas, I think, to cheer up January gloom.

    We find that they always come up far quicker than you think, and it’s hard to judge exactly when they’re going to flower. Is there a way of controlling them?

    We’ve also planted a more delicate, white variety- but I do think that red is the way forward.

    Beautiful, I have a summerhouse full of them at the moment, I cannot stop gazing at the deep red flowers. Nature is truly wonderful.
