Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 04/10/2014 at 00:32

Sorry folks, mix up on my postings there, totally lost the plot now, time for bed said Zeberdee!

Just seen fishys post, I dont know what they like, I mentioned on another thread that I just put anything I fancy in anywhere, it usually grows ok.  My salvia is lovely, just the seeds dont grow from it, tried 2 years running.

I would like the sweet peas if you have any left, they are mums favourites, I grow a row just for cutting. Also the draco wotsits, just googled and they look nice, I am going to get as many perennials in as I can for lower mantainance! (Just in case)

I can recommend those Rudbeckia, easy to grow and fantastic flowers, mine from this year are still going strong. As have Bekkies salvias, I am pleased about that because I have a tall blue one and have never got the seeds to grow!

I still have loads of seeds that I listed before, the foxgloves and delphs have germinate so have proved themselves.

I picked some white cornflowers and mixed tagettes today.

I do exactly the same as Verdun, what a load of faffing about from that book! Just grab the whole lot, in their pots, chop them back a bit,  put them in a frost free place your plastic greenhouse with the fleece on, take a few cuttings now, to keep on your window sill, there you go.

Leave them until the frost takes them, you will know then because the leaves and stalks will go black and the remaining flowers han

g.

Enjoy them for as long as you possibly can, keep dead heading they will go on into November.

Dont think this is appropriate for what you want, but on a farmers question time on the radio sometime ago, someone asked about sowing grass seed, the question was answered and then he said "the secret of a good lay is a firm bottom"

Seed swaps would be nice but I feel that customs office wont allow it.
