What a lovely generous idea, I run a school gardening club and we always need seeds , so your offer would be a godsend for me especially as the last strong winds broke our greenhouse so all find raising will be directed there, if I can work out how I'll message you my email.  Thank you in advance x

If you want to PM me your address Eve I can send you some wildflower seeds ready for sowing this spring

What a lovely lawn Tracey your OH obviously looks after it well, wish mine was like that but I'm afraid the lovely local mole had other ideas.

An island bed around the two trees would look lovely too, and I guess it cuts the mowing and tending for the OH so you could spend more time with enjoying it

Thanks Dave .  Do you think it would be ok to sow my Yellow Rattle seeds now with a cold snap expected?

What 2 plants would you put together in the herbaceous/perennial border?

Thanks Woodgreen Wonderboy, I'm off to google now. 

I under planted snowdrops , snakeshead fritillaries and crocus last year so hopefully they will peep through soon unless the pesky squirrel has munched them

What a great question Verdun.

I love crocosmia Lucifer and last year I put penstemon barbatus in the same border and they worked really well together for me, giving a lovely hot red feel.

The penstemon are still lovely and green now and I have taken cuttings, and I think both are perennial (these are the things I still need to learn). Although I have read conflicting things that say the penstemon is only half hardy I hope it comes back as nicely this year.

Can't wait to see what everyone else says
