Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 13/10/2014 at 15:51

I was wondering if anyone has any seeds to spare of the white perennial sweet pea.

I have just found there is such a thing and would like to grow a plant

Those poppies look amazing -stunning but oh so moving- is it finished yet do you know?


Sorry carried away - just a pop in - bad head day yesterday, busy garden day today and then I went to sleep.

Will look in tomorrow

Sun has just come out

Will go and plant my bergenia I think then possibly the pansy pot.

Persuaded OH that we really needed  to drive via a nursery today on the way to butchers.

Purchased some very bright pansies for a pot and a wish list Bergenia 'Bressingham White'(white garden) I know they are a bit thuggish but it's just what's needed and easy to split and spread about next year

Think I will plant it straight away and also need to finish getting in Begonias - didn't seem this many when I put them out in late spring

Pansy that happened to me with a survey about bottled water - all the same to me - some sparkles, some doesn't, taken into a nearby hotel and still can't remember why????

I have taken 20 trailing perlargonium cuttings today. New territory to me. they are now feeling warm in the downstairs loo - Wikihow said not in full sun, so downstairs loo!

Also sorted a couple of containers, but haven't planned them this year so it's a case of just plonking stuff available in and hoping for the best

Thanks for that Top bird, garden needs compost and I don't need the sieving!

Did find a kitchen knife in the one being filled the other day, have lost my best secateurs. Makes me wonder what turns up in the council green waste places!

I think it's the gardening gene in us makes us friendly.

Only use gardening ones though!

Lovely here as well, what a contrast to yesterday!

Discovered one of my daleks is ready - can I spread compost direct or should I sieve it?

Waiting for cheese on toast yum!!
