More ID's for plants in my wildflower border, please.

The top one is an ox-eye daisy, the second one might be as well, before it starts to spread. 

Do the dill like ones smell of dill?

The white flowers look like candytuft but it's not, the leaves are wrong.

Are these damsons or sloes please?

sloes are more than sour, they're so tart they're inedible

Wish list for seed and plant swap

I'm posting mine tomorrow, does anyone need any sowing instructions on anything they're asked for?

posting seed

Yes, unless you're sending lots. Then the issue is thickness of envelope and you might need a large letter stamp.

It's 5mm thick, up to 100g and up to A5 envelope for an ordinary stamp

 25mm thick, 750g and up to A4 for large letter stamp.

You can weigh on the kitchen scales but a few packets of seed is unlikely to go over weight.

I wouldn't faff about with all that dark /light/warm/cold place business. Buy a pot when they're nearly ready to flower

I prefer to see them in the garden

Prepared bulbs are usually labelled as such and probably cost more as well. They've been treated so they think they've had winter and start growing when you plant them. These are the ones you can plant just up to the neck

Ordinary hyacinth bulbs can be planted in the ground like any other bulb, well down in the soil.
