I hope you have some good selections fishy. I have some new ones from Touchwood and hope to  propagate from them especially the double yellow and the double coral and yellow.

I have seeds off my aquilegias. Mainly doubles and pom poms.  Raspberry ripple and nora barlow are separate. Also a very tall yellow and pink single that grew to over 5 ft.

Also angelica seed red stems , green football heads, suit a wild area, loved by hoverflies.

I have Swift F1 and the females are only just showing, nowhere ready to be pollinated.
