It looks like Glyceria maxima. Look that up and see if it matches what you've got.

.... and my Cyclamen coum seed, that I sowed February last year, have just germinated and sent up their first leaf.

I plan on cyclamen coum spread around a bed of double hellebores, under the Oak., with a few pulmonarias and foxgloves for later colour.

Its time to send in the army, the navy, and the TA reservists. I heard yesterday that they were opening the kings sedgemoor drain. Why the Bl***** hell wasn't it open earlier.?.....   and then the idiot Chris Smith (now Lord since labour aren't in power any more), says its all the fault of those who live on flood plains. If half of europe wasn't coming here, putting pressure on housing stock, it wouldn't have been necessary to build on green belt, flood plains and the like.

The Daily mail has started an e petition requesting that some of the foreign aid budget is diverted to aid people in this country who are suffering in these floods. If you would like to sign it electronically try here.

We have had drizzle, stair rods, sleet and snow this morning, I'm glad I dug up the plants for the odd sockers yesterday.

Seed Swaps

We had a seed swap  late in 2013, when the seeds were collected. It will probably be repeated this year.

A newbie question about seed collecting

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 22:15

It depends on whether you are growing all red short helichrysum. If you only grow short red H, and the seed is NOT an F1,it will probably breed true. If it is F1 seed, the next generation will be a mixture of the characteristics of the grandparent (parents of the F1) if you are growing a mixture, and the flowers are open pollinated eg by bees, you could get anything.
