You shouls see the water levels in the ponds noe Dove. We've never dried up completely but it's a long way down to the water. The far end of the long pond is dry.

Seed and plant swap 2015

I have

Bupleurum longifolium

Delphinium staphisagria (annual)

Penstemon ovatus, Penstemon hirsutus, both small species penstemons

Digitalis lutea, small yellow foxglove

Daphne tangutica, Dan Hinkley says these germinate well from green so I'll throw in some green ones. This is my best daphne, has a mix of flowers and red berries for months. Still has flowers so not over yet

White flowered, variegated honesty

Left over from my last offer I still have

Dianthus carthusianum

Geranium pratense, in standard bluish, pink and a dark leafed one, probably a descendent of one of the Reiter strain. (separately)

Eyngium, probably bourgatii

Lathyrus aureus

Myrrhis odorata (sweet cicely)

Polemonium brandegeei, yellow and more tolerant of dry soil than the blues

Antirrhinum, pinkish and yellows, look like a cross between a pink large flowered one and a little yellow species I have since lost.

Silene vulgaris (bladder campion)

I think it would have to be near a water supply to keep the level up and that's a long way.

Back lawn job I think.  No praps not, too useful multiple tea servings

I rig up a bog garden I'll find something a bit more to my taste to go in it Dove

I do fancy a pond and bog garden with controlled level. Where shall I dig it?

Plant ID please

Pobably won't make it by my pond any more than the other one did. The high and low tide marks are too extreme for anything other than brutes like Iris pseudocorus, sedge, reeds, typha, meadowsweet and caltha. Though the occasional water plantain survives
