Your clock must be wrong David, I got her back before midnight but she decided the night was not yet over, some time later she got out of the car singing and I went home in a bedraggled state.

 Frank - she would be perfect for you, Frank.... I'll not tell Albert.

.....last night a taxi picked up my 93 year old neighbour to take her dancing and she leaves her poor 90 y o husband to look after himself and she doesn't get back until after midnight......this happens every Saturday night!

Tut tut.

Before someone reminds me, I must add to my previous post, that SP seed will remain viable for several years if stored properly i.e. stored in an airtight tin & kept in a cool place, such as a unheated garage.

The fact remains that all seeds germination rate decreases with age.

I would just say, that SP seed will keep for another year or even longer......best remember (as with all seed) the germination rate decreases the older it is.

Yes it was Eagle, I went for the Chelsea collection just my kind of colours. Hope the perfume is good.

 

Ah, good  I thought the 'Chelsea Collection' seemed to fit the bill, but wasn't  sure about quantity of seed & price you were thinking of.

Be assured, their perfume won't disappoint.

Thanks for the recommendation David.  Ive ordered a packet of seeds.  They provide some good cultivation information too, so fingers crossed I'll have more success this year.

 

You're welcome, Yviestevie......was this from Eagle, if so, what did you choose?

Thank you David, very enjoyable.  I must try and find the Clacks Farm tune now. 

 

I've been trying to find it, Forrester, but have drawn a blank so far. I remember it in my distant memory, having close ties with Arthur Billitt & Clack's Farm in the 70s.

Hi, Yviestevie, you pays your money takes your choice of course, but your on the right track by understanding that quality seed = quality flowers.

To meet your requirements, I would suggest the 'Chelsea Seed Collection' by Eagle Sweet Peas. http://www.eaglesweetpeas.co.uk/gallery.php?g=4

There are other specialists out there such as Matthewmans, but my own preference is for Eagle SPs for consistent quality & service.
