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.

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.

begonia's what s the best ?

I do exactly as Verdun says there.

Dont forget Gran is oop norf so maybe hers have finished.

I can't even grow then outside, mine are all in the conservatory and still blooming well.

I would now save them for next year, then they will be good sized plants to plant out in September next year, small plants tend to get eaten by slugs.

Cornish Clare. I'm about 10 miles from Bude if you're ever in these parts, feel free to pop in. I'm sure you'd not leave empty handed .

Eh Lyn? 

another meet coming up I think Clare may be further down in Cornwall, Verdun country maybe.
