I got my dahila and amaranthus from last years flowers in my garden, I got my poppy seeds fron next door, (we regularly swap seeds, flowers fruit and veg )my other neighbour gave me 2 packets of love-in a mist and Aubrita from her free seeds with Shreded wheat. In return i take her sweetpeas every few days. My marigolds from my mum-in-law- 5 packets of DT brown seeds free with the Kitchen Garden magazine and free gloves and potato kit and 5 seeds all in the same issue. I had Cosmo Purity from GW Mag, I also bought seeds from Thompson and Morgan and Mr Fothergills. I once raid in GW that a generous gardner is never poor. I totally agree, I have made new firends, kept in touch with the neighbours shared advice, tips and produce,and got a huge amount of pleasure from the garden.
