Wish list for seed and plant swap

That is very similar to mine Bekkie, I find they do better from root cuttings, if you collect seed they wont flower till the following year, roots will flower next year. Is it this?


Sometimes seeds don't come true, cuttings will, if you really want to stick to white, I would take the base shoots and pot them up.

This is the double aquilegia I have ready now from seeds.

 the white and yellow also ready to go

Firstly. I dont think that people who buy feed weed and moss killer to treat their lawns are 'Gullible'

I would like to see you use a ball of string to mark out my grass, blimey is there one so big!

How does the scarifying lawn rake remove dandelions, plantain, sorrell etc, pretty strong rake I reckon, where do you buy such a tool?

Noted amanda, I can do that, bit later on.


What colour is the achillea Victoria? I have a tall yellow and a shorter one in bright pink. I can do root cuttings if anyone wants them.


I have potted up some of the tall canpanula and the canp. Glomerata in both colours. I want to make sure they are well rooted and will then send them out ready to over winter then plant in the Spring. They will bloom next year,

Once you have a good head on the plant, then remove the leaves from the stalk, remove all side shoots from stem and base all the way through the growing period as soon as they appear, but dont take the the leaves off until you have a good head.
