Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 04/08/2014 at 00:47

Bekkie, could I have a few salvia seeds if you have any left please.

Do you sow them now or wait till Spring?

I was just reading about the agastache, it said they need winter protection, it gets mighty wild down here in the winter. What do you think?

How lovely, and no rain, brilliant, glad you enjoyed it.

We have a lovely open air natural theatre here in Cornwall.

I have just bought a Choisya sundance, thats white evergreen and likes shade, and cost 1.30, needs potting up but will be good next year.

my garden is like an explosion in the paint factory, if it grows for me, it stays. Any colours, I just love them all.

And I have a fuchsia pink colour almost bordering on purple.

SGL you need to keep a close eye on foxglove seeds now, one day they are greenish, next day popped.

Pull the whole pod carefully off the plant and open it over a sheet of paper, its like dust.

How to post photos from iPad

I dont know if android and ipad are similar, but i can click on the star in the main search box then select to save as bookmarks. I have tried it and it works on tablet.

I cant wait for my ipad to arrive.

They are going to a good home Bekkie, the first 2 you sent are lovely little plants, you would think they had been in for ages.

Dont worry about not marking them, I dont mind and I can always shuffle around next year.

You coud dig a trench around what you want to keep and put plastic sheeting down to stop the roots travelling.
