I would like some monarda seeds if anyone has any - when finished flowering I can offer verbena bonaris seed, agapanthus seed, garlic chives seed, roots of Japanese anemone & arun lily.

Do you have a friend with a dog? I take my dog to a friends just for a run around the garden say once a month and this keeps the neighbours cat out as they can smell where the dog has been - invite a doggy friend over for a cuppa, you sit n chat and the dog wanders around ! sorted!!

I regularly start off plants on my kitchen window sill, in pots of compost. Every time within 2 weeks I have small dark fly that sit on the soil and fly up when I move the pots. My seedlings etc always do well and don't seem to be affected but why do I get these? Everyone else I know doesn't know what I'm talking about! Even in the winter I can't grow an amaryllis without getting them!
