Hi Gardengirl i have a confession to make,those seeds you sent me i sowed the day after i got them but was a little windy and i dropped one of the packets and they went where they wanted,today i notice these where they must have landed,any idea from the picture which ones they are as i never noted down and what should i do with them as they seem very bunched up.

Coys I would leave them to get bigger, the first set of proper leave (the true ones) come out after the ones that have appeared up in the soil - then the plant id may be possible as they look more like the plant will be

I have found seeds pop up somewhere else wind likes to blow them around.

those seeds must of picked that place to be

put another pic on later when bigger

Hi can I join in on this one?

How does postage cost  get worked out?


11/10/2013 at 13:33

Yes urban that is fine.. it is normal the send who pays and return they send you some seeds back.. so everyone pays for it really.. or some do pay-pal if you do not have any to swap.. best to ask each member whose seeds you are after.

diddy.. i have sown my honesty, common burdock and varigated honesty.. they ave all come up so far.. burdock are now in 9cm pots and doing very well. also the small scabious igot is coming up. so thank you to all who sent them.. icant recall who..

i have not planted alot of them waiting until spring as this is their time.

Gardeningfantic - Acanthus can, after many years, grows to being anything between 30 - 60cms  for the leaves

it takes a while from seed

I gave you the honesty purple, common burdock and small mauve scabious glad they are coming up well


Urban Wildlife - I have seeds to swap can't remember what a min all flowers

@gardengirl... many thanks. mine are already large and the roots..well they are very thick and fast growing.. so the space i gave them is about right then for the size they can become.

I have a lovely innula known here as the false sunflowers which I can supply as a bare root if any one is interested.

I'm interested in insect friendly flowers

That's the eryngium, daphne, telekia and corydalis gone.

Anyone for the rest?

13/10/2013 at 16:17

Hi nut can i please have some of the verbascum,nicotinia,daphne mezereum,ans astrantia.

is there any thing you are looking for in particulary as i now have so many seeds i have taken out what i need so i will soon post them for offer soon.

13/10/2013 at 16:21

Nut if you've got any of the Telekia left I'd love some, but I don't want FB to go without so could happily wait until next year 

13/10/2013 at 16:36

I will only need a few seeds. If I get  3 plants out of it I will be happy. RHS usually only send about 20 seeds of perennials and its enough. If you can split them, Nut, thats OK by me.
