Just leave the seed heads on and you will have lots of them!

Great!   We need to nuture an interest in gardening in children.    I always wish it had been done wih me, although I did watch my Dad - just wasn't allowed to touch anything.   I'm a pensioner now, but if I had my time over again, I would try for horticultural college!

Oh, goodness me.     Still, life is one big learning curve, for you and your daughter!   I hope you were able to laugh about it later (after the tears).

Yes, I shall be trying the autumn plus spring sowing starting in October.    I am still waiting for a sign of flowers on mine this year.    Mind you, a little sun might encourage them but that is beyond any gardener's control!

give and you will receive

A swap shop would be a very good idea, Julie.

Help with identification please

Violets are pretty flowers but spread and take over.     If your third picture is a speedwell, take care, this can do the same!

This thread reminds me of the lovely poem written by D. H. Lawrence "A snake came to my water trough..."

If you are too shy to knock on neighbours doors, but want to do a plant swap, why not design a flyer and put it through people's doors?    Then the only ones to contact you will be those who are actually interested.

Yes, my bet would also be slugs or snails.   Any sign of their slimy trails?

Clematis came immediately into my mind.
