SGL could I have some peachy and some pink ones please.  I have white.

I have potted Bekkies Yucca in 5 inch pots and put them in a sheltered spot in the garden. I will give them a little before planting out.

The salvias get to 3 or 4 ft in my garden, and you are spot on, i struggle to throw anything away unless its a real pest!

SGL, i grow this yucca outside, but im sure you could keep it indoors if you wanted

i'm thinking of creating a new large black themed planted border next year - I could give a forever home to anything seeds which have full or partial black colours 

Many thanks

Not sure if I have any but will look next time I can take a stroll around, its so wet at the moment, but the good thing is that the new pond is now completely full with rain water!.

Personally I am not that keen on black flowers, I like the flashy ones!

Foolio, I have some aquilegia Black Barlow seeds.

I will be putting my full seed list on when I have finished gathering. Some stuff is yet to ripen fully.

Thanks fidgetbones - aquilegia would be lovely

Looking round the garden, the nearest I have is a very dark maroon heuchera, I have Polenium with very dark leaves but the flowers are mid blue.

Fidget, could you spare a few of those aquilegia for me please.

Im quite interested to see a "black" garden, i would worry the flowers/ plants would be hard to see, keep us posted Foolio
