Can I ask if both sets of seed came from the same place?

There were mice in the garage at one point and we don't want them back! I tend to use the pantry which is a little better. Thanks, I'll bring them in when I can.

Thanks! The Leymus does look good, I may have a go at growing it from seed.

The foliage is all laid down, mostly brown but some green remaining. The weather for the rest of the week is decidedly monsoon-like, and I won't be around to harvest next week. The only space I have for drying/storage is in the house. What would you do?

If I had loads of time and skill i'd make something as anything I can afford will no doubt be overpriced and on the flimsier side.

Looking for a grass species to use in a seashore themed container garden, ideally good for wildlife and providing year round interest of some sort. Any ideas?

Thanks! Is yours real glass? It's a relatively sheltered garden though the fence panels can move a bit when it's really windy.

Our plastic mini greenhouse was damaged in high winds so we're thinking of getting one of these. It will be on a patio against a fence- will it still be vulnerable to wind, and will it need fixing down?

 Wow, some great recycling! I'm largely looking for ideas for plants/styles of plants to use, ideally beneficial to wildlife. Sorry about the mess and the open gate, but you can see the area is quite narrow. The existing planters are falling apart. The gap had a plastic greenhouse, which was destroyed in windy weather over winter.
