Seed and Plant Swap 2017

Posted: 11/07/2017 at 11:06

Hi All,

one of my bamboos unfortunately flowered this year and now I have hundreds of bamboo seeds. The husband has even managed to get some to germinate in a pot. The bamboo is a phyllostachys variety and in the 13 years it has been in the ground has not gone mad, though it also does well in a big pot. If anyone wants seeds please PM me.

I will be sorting seed and will put a list up when ready. I will hopefully have Knautia and white Scabious available.

Mary370, yes Sarah Raven does send plants. I have had Astrantias from there this year.

What is this plant?

I spotted this plant growing in a wall of a very small church on the coast in Wales near Rhoslefain. Does anyone know what it is? (It isn't the ivy to the left).

I would agree with Paul B3 and say Hayloft. I don't know if Sarah Raven do, but worth a look. They always turn up in good condition when I've ordered from there.

What is this?

A Grass, but which one?

I've had this in my front garden for a while but don't know which type it is. It might be a stip but its not Gigantea or Tenuissima.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
