oh right..... diddy.. you had me there for a moment...

Hello,  I found this site earlier and was so excited that I have signed up and have been out collecting from my garden! 

I have some spare seeds from:

Nasturtium

Sweet pea

Cosmos

Globe thistle

and

something which may be feverfew ...

Hope someone would like some

Stacey Docherty

Welcome lizzy b great collection..... I would love some cosmos whatever colour as my daughter loves it.... I have a huge list including chillies, flowers and vegetables listed on the 1st or seconds page... However my poppy seeds are almost gobe now I could spare a pinch..... I also have buckland astrantia now.....

Stacey, the cosmos is mostly a fantastic vibrant pink though there may be some pale pink too.  I think I collected seeds from both but they have been drying for a while and I can't remember.  It all either grew from seeds I collected last year or from self sets in the drive!

I would love to swap for some of the buckland astrantia.

How does this work? How many seeds do we send? L plates on!

Diddydoit

Welcome Lizzy.

I would love some of your globe thistle, sweetpea,and nasturtium,s if possible Lizzy.

I will pm you with my address.

I also have cosmos stacey,did you not check my new list that i put up?
