Flowers to Grow in Allotment

Posted: Yesterday at 19:04

Mattbeer - made a start today with your idea as I have bought a huge bag of daffodils and narcissi so plan to plant tomorrow.  I have also bought a packet of cornflowers. I met one of the allotmanteers this morning who had been cropping raspberries and she also had a huge bunch of dahlias which she had grown this year so will give those a go too.

Zoomer - I thought they might be Marshalls mini pop as I bought quite a bit of stuff from them but they are Johnsons.  If you are still interested PM me with your contact details and I'll pop them in the post.

Hello Lyn - no, I found that mini pop plants grow really tall, even taller than normal sized sweet corn.  I don't know if Zoomer's grew like that too.

Zoomer - I can't remember where I got them from and it's a bit dark out there tonight.  I will look tomorrow and let you know.  You are more than welcome to have the seeds as I think you and I were growing them for the first time this year.

Oh dear.  I bought a coreopsis this year which is a beautiful deep pink ,so does that mean I have to dig it up and keep it somewhere sheltered overwinter?

The seed and plant swop thread is doing really well, but seems mainly to be flowers so I thought a vegatable thread could be separate as folks will be saving bean and other seeds just now.

To start it off I have Sweet Corn Mini Pop seeds (38) in original used packet viable up to 2015.
