Thank you so much for your response Chrissie! That's such a good idea. I'm sending forget-me-not seeds, I bought a pack from ebay here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORGET-ME-NOT-MYOSOTIS-SYLVATICA-1-5GM-1500-SEEDS-/280919218950?pt=UK_HomeGarden_Garden_PlantsSeedsBulbs_JN&hash=item4168171b06 

I didn't think how ridiculous it would be to count each seed so I've just emptied out what looks like a decent amount! 

I'd already bought a load of small muslin pouches with the plan that the seeds would go in there but I'm a bit worried as it's not air tight. So I'm thinking put them in a tiny envelope and then put that in the pouch.

Hi, I'm a complete and utter newbie with plants so I'm wondering if someone can help! I've bought a packet of 1,500 forget-me-not seeds from ebay with the plan to include them in each package I send out to my clients. I was wondering, how many am I best including in each package (I'm simply including them as a little thank you gift) - also how shall I package them? If I'm going to divide them up I'll need to open the sachet and then put them in individual sachets - is this ideal or will they no longer be fresh? I'm guessing giving 1,500 seeds to one client would be a bit crazy?! These are pretty amateur questions...sorry for the lack of knowledge! Any great would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Hi, 

I'm a newbie when it comes to plants. My boyfriend bought me an amaryllis a few months ago, it flowered and since then has grown a lot and looks like it's trying to flower again. It's clearly too big for the pot now and the roots are pretty visible. I'm guessing I need to repot it but unsure of the best way of doing this (I'm incredibly new to all of this!).

There are some photographs below. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
