    I planted Scabiosa seeds about two months ago and they popped up beautifully. However, they have stymied at about 3″ tall. They are space over 12″ apart and receive the partial shade to full sun that the packet stipulated. Any advise? I’m about to give up on them since they haven’t increased in size in about a month. Thanks for your help!

      I should keep going with them…mine are only about three inches high right now too…hopefully they will shoot up any week now. :)

    Re the garden pests; have you never sat in the garden on a nice day and watched and marvelled at the wildlife in your garden?? I know I have and they give me endless hours of enjoyment;even the lowly woodmouse. Just plant a few extra seedlings and chances are you will both be happy.Alternatively leave the mice something else to nibble on and they might ignore your plants.and everyone is happy. Good luck.

    Staying calm, relaxing, pressing the orange update button!Yay! Really this is too much excitement for a Thursday evening.

    Scabiosa certainly rock my floral world. Hungry mice have done for a lot of my Autumn sown seedlings which is gutting, and make me wonder about reverting to Spring sowing. I would be really interested to hear the results of your comparison planting.

    Happy New Year to all at H.G. Belinda x
