Thanks again to Lyn for sending me the 

Lychnis coronaria - dusty miller (rose campion) seeds

I was told so sow in March/April time but read somewhere that they can be started in Jan-March. So I did a test sowing (2 pots same conditions) one of the pots germinated in 3 days, the other still has no signs of life 3 weeks later. Heres a pic I took today. As you can see they are still very small (I dont have a giant finger) and not at all leggy & only just grown their second leaf (or first true leaf).



 I think I am going to have to sow a new batch in about 2 weeks. 

Looks like I may have spoke to soon, I checked these this morning and I now have 8 shoots sprouting. Nature is a strange beast that 4 new ones would sprout several weeks after they were sown and several weeks after the others in the same pot and conditions. I'm thrilled..

Hi Joyce M (mannell).

Can I suggest that you list the seeds that you have to swop and those that you are after here?

I've found that this great place to swop seeds and other plants/cuttings that you may be after. It is a busy place, but I'm sure others will respond once they know what you you want to swop.
