My seed from 'white swan' germinated fine last spring and I see the potted on seedlings in the greenhouse are now back in growth.

The seed I sowed in November has yet to show.

The seedlings from two years ago are up in the garden and the main plant which is in a pot in a frame is just showing.

It is a very slow growing plant from seed.

Germination rate was very high; it was seed collected off my own plant and sown fresh.  Now I can try growing them on, in a couple different garden locations.  I do the same, planting out small clumps of seedlings.  By the way, the tiny seedlings of Gentiana purpurea from your seed, were planted out last autumn, and they look good now and starting to grow, thank you!

Thank you for your answer, Mark, and you are welcome! Hope the "søterot" make gardenworthy plants for you ;)

Trond, I almost poked my eye out on that word; I'll just call it Gentiana purpurea  ;)

Mark, you can try the English translation: "sweet root"! Actually it tastes very bitter I am told, but as it was a popular remedy against different illnesses you couldn't afford to offend the good spirit of the root!
