Hi Diddy,

Can I swap you for some Echinacea and some Sea Holly?  I had Sea Holly in my wedding bouquet at Easter and my husband had it in his buttonhole - it would be amazing to have some in our garden!

Is there a'normal' amount of seeds to send?  I would hate to be rude by mistake!

I'll try and pm you too.

Some people send 7-9 packets in one envolope and just put a first or second class envolope or if in doubt put a large second class onto it.

If you pm your address i can do likewise.That is what makes the seedswap so good it only costs the postage to get several packets of seed in exchange for some of your own.

Why not bring your friends on-board,the more the merrier.

Lizzyb the seeds aren't quite ready( just bought plant Saturday) but should be this week I reckon.... It's raining so I will take a look when it stops.... I will pm you my address pink is fab gets is pink ATM and she ( 2.5 years old!!!) walks past it saying I planted that mummy... and she did in spring!!! Send what you can spare... No rules .... My husband and I had sea holly in our wedding bouquets and button holes as well... He's Scottish and its the closest to thistle I could get...

I've posted everything except cotty's collection this afternoon.

One more to ripen cotty

10/09/2013 at 20:05

Ok thanks. I am going to be planting a prairie garden next year and would like some grasses to go in there.

But I know nothing of grasses. I would like some seeds of grasses that are fluffy,that have coloured seed heads and have autumn colour.

Please help. I have a big collection of seeds to swap. Let me know what you would like and I will see what I can do.

10/09/2013 at 21:04

My cornflower started popping up in the tray thanks the potty gardener

Cotty I have pony tail grass seeds take a while to get grow big, they still look nice in autumn no fluffy seed heads or red ness in winter thou

10/09/2013 at 21:14

Hi Gardengirl,

I would love some Mallow and some small scabious please?  I'll pm you my address and pop yours in the post tomorrow.



Diddy, the scabious is gardengirl's not mine... nothing new to add from me I'm afraid.


Confession... I've forgotten to put my name on the seeds I have posted so if you get a mystery package it could be from me! Seeds wrapped in kitchen roll then a little bag with holes in.

10/09/2013 at 21:33

Thanks Lizzy

I will sort some seeds out for you, is it the white mallow or the Mallow malva sylvestris pink one?

Diddy it is me with small scabious seeds mauve and Gardeningfantic who has large scabious seeds
