@gardeningfantic - Yes please, that would be fantastic! The only thing I've got to offer in return at the moment is a few nasturtium seeds if you're interested? Shall I PM you my address?

BTW, how do you go about harvesting seeds? I've got a few things coming up that I wouldn't mind trying it with. Some seeds from my aquilegias and digitalis would be nice.

i do not know what PM my address means.. i am not that good on computers.. stil cant load up pictures to gallery or this forrum yet..

no i dont need anything in return.. i am happy to pass on seeds to other growers.. please do PM me..  and i will send you some.. i had loadslast year.. and they all grew and are flowering now..wish i could load piccie of them for ya to see.

i have just harvested some and waitin for them to dry so will send to you when rady and i planted mine at end of summer lasat year.. or when they woul dnatural finish flowering i find best to sow seeds.

please do tell me how to find you details when you PM me.
