It depends what seeds, i usually make do witht those big clear bin bags over the pots, just to keep the worst of the weather out.

If you know anyone who works in the NHS, you wont need to buy the bags

Its called 'perks of the job' Bekkie, they only dump all this sort of stuff anyway, you may as well give it a new home.

You do spoil me Lyn  Bless you. I wish I had more seeds to give away but they are all beginner types. Though I have still got delphiniums,lilac flower. Salvia Verticillata? They are a bee magnet...go on,you know you want some.

So that's you there Lyn? Taken about 25 years ago?

25 years ago, not that long.

I would actually love some lilac delphs please.

Can you google the plants when they arrive, I have kept the labels.


Lphs please.
