From seed to plant

This was from a cross last year of Tom (show pansy)and James Wallace (show pansy)and the resulting seed sown last year. Photo taken just after a shower. On the plant not me .

I discarded dozens once they flowered, before deciding on this one.

Sadly the blooms never made it to the show bench in the end, but it is still flowering though way past its best. Even now with fifty plus blooms, at its prime it had hundreds !!!! All from just ONE seed.

Despite telling new growers to cut back top growth hard in late May, to re-invigorate, I left this one and whilst the basal shoots have not materialised managed to get a couple of cuttings to grow on for next year.
