Then again, some people don't get a toolbar, so then you have to use colon, semi colon and the bracket.

there are hundreds on the iPad, none of them work on this site, just come out as a row of question marks.

I have enough white aconitum seeds to bump of a small continent if anyone wants them.

Not that I can get them going, I am going to give lots to Hostafan in the hopes he can, then I can have them back as plants, he's such a dear llike that.

also, Borage, cerinthe, white aquilegia, dark blue aquilegia , 

In new unopened packets...dianthus superbugs mixed.

Blue cornflower

Zinnia purple prince

Poppy nudicaule mixed

Small cosmos orange and yellow, had some out.

Yellow mesembryanthemum dated 2015but will still germinate.


Vermiculite or Perlite

A ton of feathers weighs the same as a ton of lead.

A ton of perlite would keep you going for a day or two.

Lovely pics Marion, I chopped my shastas  down and they are coming again, hopefully should flower later.

Nice to see the chrysanthemum starting to open, hope it doesn't go soggy in the rain.

I love the cleome, one year mine got  completely eaten by caterpillars. the saved seeds are much better than a new packet I find. 

what's looking good ?

Mine is usually best this time of year, rabbits have eaten a lot but they are recovering, the potentilla are good, rudbeckia, echinops, helenium, penstemon, foxgloves having another go, Flanders poppies, deadheaded they never stop, dahlias, cosmos, fuchsias, at their best when it's a bit colder, verbena Bon just beginning to put on a show. Perennial sweet peas, hydrangeas, buddliea, crocosmia, montbretia, asters, geums, there's more but that's all I can see from the window. Oh, roses and geraniums still going. Tall anemones just starting.
