I tried seed last autumn and nothing germinated, so Iíve gone for bulbs this year. I reckon youíre better off with bulbs, as long as you buy from a decent source - quicker results and much better chance of success!

I think they need to be in the ground all Winter and frozen for a while, then they come up everywhere!! I started with little bulbs but now know they are spreading by seed as they come up in the cracks in the stone path  :lol: :lol:

You obviously got them off to a good start! :) My seed was in all winter so got a good frosting, but still nothing came up... Maybe it was old. I reckon bulbs are a safer bet to begin with, anyway.

Bulbs are definitely the way to start, and then once they are large enough to flower (mine took 2 years) then seed is self sown absolutely fresh
