sorry did wrong button the vipers bugloss is not perennial but it self seeds like a foxglove if you let it.. tiney black seeds when flowes are gone.. is it bit prickey when you touch it.. that is vipers bugloss

the agastache is meant to be perennial but i treat it as half hardy depending on where you are..

@nutcutlet. no it doesnt have darker veins in is pure creamynish inside..  i sowed some last year and only a few flowered this year so possibly flower following year.. but last some time.. the seed like foxglove and have has many seeds in each pod as well

 this is you still want some of my white astrantia stacey.. and cant remember what else it was..

i will send my seeds out soon except the giant scabious as they are still flowering and will do for some time yet.. then i will harvest for sowing next year..

i can add digitailis grandaflora to my seed list also.. a lovey perennial foxglove with creamy yellow flowers about 18ins tall.. mine had been in my garden for 4 years now and each year coms up twice as big.. so is perennial i think..

Gardeningfanatic I have tried to send you a message but the system doesn't seem to be working properly. Can I please have some more scabious off you,as I love this well as some vipers bugloss,astrantia and some monarda please.

Have you got anymore bearded irises left too?

I have got some verbena bonariensis,mixed cornflower,sea holly and echinops if you fancy?


hi ya.. i have possible 3 rhizomes left.. waiting on someone to decide or not.. if not you can have them.. i do not have monarda seeds and the astrantia are now all allocated..

i would love some more of your orlaya grandiflora,  i loved this and 3 out of the 5 you sent before are now flowering in the garden.  and some verbascum otherwise surprise me with anything that likes very sandy free draining soil.
