In the cottage garden society seed lists there are seeds in the swap from members who live in other countries so it must be ok for certain ones.

Though I know Australia are very strict on this issue.had a friend who wanted to send some over but was not allowed.

HECK THIS KINDLE !!!!!!! it's done it again  , shall have to get the laptop out.  Before they put me out with the rubbish  or start wearing me specs.  

Anyway what it should have read and what I'm asking is nut if your thinning out do you want to do a swap for something your wanting  ( plant or seed ) ? If I have it. 

At the moment I'm collecting seed for the cottage garden and hardy plant society and now this forums seed swap if  I can. I grow as many different plants that I can for the seed swaps .

I am looking for a shrub to brighten up a corner. At the bottom of our garden  In shade to part shade.the soil is dry sandy peaty is a large border of shrubs but they are a mass of just dark greens .so it looks dull and boring.I have already a tall pine tree in the corner , a dog wood .a st John's wort and a skimmia.

.with it being at the bottom corner of half an acre of lawn it looks dull .I am looking for some type of shrub that will brighten it up preferably evergreen I think and not necessarily  a flower ing shrub. The hehe on the boundry I'd a mix of sloe and Hawthorne.the garden backs onto fields.
