seed share

Posted: 01/09/2013 at 17:28

I have just acquired some Chile black scabious,silvery sea holly(not wilmots ghost) and white cosmos.

It is good to look after people's gardens whilst they are on holiday

Thank you for your tips. I have already noticed someone on freecycle and will get in touch

I need to improve the soil in my garden and I am thinking manure is the best option. My soil is clay.this summer I couldn't even penetrate the surface with a garden fork!

I don't know where to get it from?

Can I randomly ask farmers?Will they deliver it? What is the normal price?

I have got plenty of seeds if you would like some.I haven't seen as many butterflies before and they love this plant. Check out my list a couple of pages back if you would like anything else.

Potty gardener I have some scabious seeds as well as the peas for you. I will have to Google some of yours first as I am unsure whether I have got them. It might be Tuesday when I am in touch next as I am going to a county show tomorrow(today in a few hours).

Do we leave it a few days to see if the website rectifies itself before swapping addresses?

I will post basic details and will abbreviate when I can as my list is long.

Here's my list

eryngium several varieties,verbena bonariensis,verbascum phoneniceum,catmint,clematis integrifolia,astrantia various,geranium orchids blue,salvia salvia various ,aquilegia mixed,moon carrot,knapweed,primula mooreana,Echinacea various,scabious various,phlomis,echinops various,agastache mexicana,rudbeckia various,aconitum Newry blue,orlaya grandiflora,oenothera sunset,foxglove various,monarda fistulosa,wild angelica,campanula various,blanket flower,delph galahad,cowslip,hollyhock various,Lupin various,gypsophila,poppy Iceland,marguerites and ever lasting sweet pea.

This is my current seed collection,in the autumn it will be bigger with perennials,annuals and bulb seeds. I have only listed perennials as that is my passion. I have plenty of annual seeds too,so feel free to ask me what I have now or what I will have come the autumn.

In return I would like any umbelifers like cow parsley,which I own,rudbeckia or Echinacea perennial seeds,scabious,agastache,salvia or surprise me.

I will send seeds out even if you haven't got anything I fancy.just send me a letter with a pre paid envelope inside.

Any questions just ask.I am already excited
