Best blue flowering plant

Posted: 28/12/2012 at 18:42

I like Ageratum fluffy plant looks pretty low growing, I like blue cornflower and small blue sweet peas.

Blue and yellow flowers do look nice together

Do you grow lots of blue flowers?

I have never grown hebes from seed only from cutting of plants in my garden or brought them from garden centres.

Cuttings are easy to do and I like growing them that way

Do you like hebes?

What a lot of seeds - took quite a while to look what they all were.  I do know what some of them are and have tried them myself.  I bought ammi Graceland after seeing it on Gardener's World programme.  It looks good,

I would like the Cosmos purity seeds to swap with you.  I will message you with my address.

Hello Bjay,  I would like to swap the white campion seeds for the sweet pea Spencer special mix  if possible.  I will message you my address if you give me yours.

Hello Cottage Garden Fairy,

I sow aquilegia seeds in March/April time, in small pots in my plastic greenhouse and plant when large enough, they then flower the following year.

Hello joyce

I have seeds that sometimes are out of date - but as long as they are keept dry they should be ok.

I keep mine in old candy floss pots ( plastic sealed pots)

Where do you seed swap?

Have you got any seeds you want to swap?

Approval from the community rail representative - he thinks the tyre planters are fantastic - I did not know if he would think they are ok - as we put them there without him knowing.

But he likes them phew
