It took me several goes to get the correct offer prices, I had to go back several times, problems with T&M website , I think.   The offer is only only selected lines, you have to click through annuals, veg seeds, and perennials separately.  I picked the expensive ones out of those I wanted. They have sent me a £5 voucher off any orderbefore end of April, so I will use that  towards 6 packets at 99p, plus postage.

This order was total £31.60, discount £26.60, postage £1.95, total £6.95

next will be 6 x 99p = £5.94 less £5 plus £1.95 postage. total  £2.89 so  £9.84 for 16 packs of seed worth £37.54  not bad in my book.

They did a similar offer earlier on in the year. It took a week for the seeds to arrive due to the demand I think.

I will be sowing Knautia "red cherries" this weekend as well as some seed of melton pastels that I saved from last year. Insects love them, and I will be putting them in the wild patch.

I pot them up when they start shooting. I have the tubers covered, but the stem and shoot bit sticking above the compost.

I have three of these, one in the front, one in the sunny border, and one in the long border. this is a picture of the long border a couple of years ago. The Cephalaria gigantea is in the middle with the yellow flowers. It was first year flowering. it is now a huge clump about 3 ft across. it grows 6 ft high

I think the weird one is tomatoes grafted on to potato plants, but both are Solanum family.
