I have spare seeds in packets dated sow by aug 2014.

Californian poppy. Bright orange poppy. Cosmos purity (white). Swan river daisy summer skys.

I would like a packet of sage seeds if anyone has any spare, or just a pinch, if you have already opened your packet.

Thank you,

Lyn.

Don't know what I was thinking of there! they are Stachys Biz. seeds not lychnis, sorry to confuse.

Bev, thank you so much, the seeds have arrived today, I am tempted to leave the verbena B till the summer and grow it on as a usual perennial, and plant out Autumn or early spring next year, I know they say 1st year flowering, but I have never had much success with that in other seeds.

No I haven't Lyn, about to start my spring sowings as soon as the temperature rises.

But I'll find the thread there somewhere if it sinks into oblivion

22/03/2013 at 17:56

Hiya  Lyn, I'm not done yet either, although I haven't swopped any for a while. I'm also waiting for the weather to warm up to sow some more. I'll probably be having stuff on the go all year and I'm sure I'll have some left over and be on the look out for more

22/03/2013 at 18:05

I get things all year as well. The aquilegias and hellebores (and other) are best swapped and sown fresh.
