what has happened to the seed swap?

Posted: 29/09/2013 at 22:47

it is a place where you list your seeds to see if anybody wants them,and you can ask people for specific seeds to make an exchange.

It is brilliant with lots of generous people

sorry for the lack of sowing instructions.I would personally start sowing in spring,but try a small amount now and overwinter in a sheltered place.I haven't sown some of them before as I have either collected seeds from somewhere else or taken seeds off a mature plant bought from a nursery.

Are you changing your name on a daily basis now diddydoit aka giggalo aka flirt!?

Gardengirl I kept deadheading mine and ended up with no flowers to seed. I will try my mum and dads for you. I have got plenty of blue or purple for you,have you got any perennial grass seeds?

Dr diddy you can have some monarda and helenium,what grasses did you you say you had? 

Who had some grass seeds for me I forget,it can get quite complicated all this seed swap lark!

Gardeningfanatic thanks for the seeds. I will add them to your list and send them when ripe.

Gardengirl I have loads of seeds annual and perennial. Have a think what you fancy and I will sift through my two shoe boxes and posh wooden seed box. I have Shasta daisy,helenium,golden rod and red monarda that is nearly ready. 

I know it is a cop out saying what do you fancy but I have too many to list!

Is this grass black or is it black grass?

I googled black grass and it is a farm land weed. Or is it ophiopogon? The nice looking grass.

Don't get me wrong some weeds look nice but I hope it is the latter.
