Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 23/08/2014 at 13:44

Thank you Bekkie, those little plants are fantastic, I didnt expect them to be that well grow. I am thinking about putting one as a backdrop to my new pond. Karen will love the other one in her front garden. Is there anything else on your wish list?

Seeds are on their way to Fishy, wont be there till Tuesday as its bank holiday.

From one who has a useless memory, I have forgotten who wanted the pale ice blue delphiniums, can you please get in touch by 'private message'

Those Sparrowhawks scare me, the noise is awful, We chase them off from the garden, there are fields and forests where they can catch birds and I cant see it.

I cant wait for my pond to be up and running and hopefully dragonflys will set in. We have frogs because earlier in the year I had spawn and reared dozens of froglets, so hopefully they will find the big pond and not come back to the muddy puddle I dug for them.

Just like the vine weevil!

Received 48 perennial plugs, but what do I do next?

Any multi purpose compost will do.

She's beautiful, my daughter had them in St Austell, not sure if they were wild though or if they were let out from someones tank.

I would also keep them back for next Spring, they will, by then be in 5 inch pots and be a lovely sturdy strong plant.

They need to be planted in their own individual pots so the roots can spread out.

The Echinacea and I think the Salvia and Nepeta will instantly be chewed right off to the ground by slugs, so take care there.

phlox paniculata

They are definitely running to seed Bekkie, shall we keep some when ripe and have a go. There is not much cutting material yet, but I will keep an eye on them, phlox for next year?

Dark pink, light pink and white.

Mine are good at the moment, are they easy to do from seed, I have been deading heading but could leave some on, and what about root division or is it just cuttings?. 

I have dark pink and white ones.
