Mulching with privet

True Verdun but I find the moisture retention makes up for any other drawbacks

Sorry David, GC is Garden Centre.

The seed swap is a bit idle at the moment. It will come to the top of the forum when we start harvesting  seeds again, or maybe sooner if people have left-overs when they sow in spring

If you end up buying them, Pottertons are good, I've been there, lovely plants.

I cut my buddleia back a bit before winter, to stop them being blown about, then right back after the winter. You can use the bits for cuttings (not my strong point)

Anemone nemorosa are corms. You'll probably find some in the GCs soon. 'Vestral' is popular so you should find that one

I had to do an afternoon refill on the feeders today. First time this winter

Seeds in mortar

If you're thinking of building a wall you can still get the old mortars. They're used in renovation of old buildings

Ruscus aculeatus

Yes, Burncoose are a bit expensive, I've never bought from them. I'd really like the ruscus, maybe one of the native plant growers will have one.

Danae racemosa is  very nice though

I haven't grown that one Punkdoc. I've got something similar which I bought unseen as Butcher's Broom, expecting the ruscus. When it got here it was Danae racemosa.

I think the ruscus will grow in dry shade though, that's where I was going to grow it. I shall have to try again. Have you found a good source.

I like the danae but I'd still like the ruscus

Thank you Bookertoo. It can be hard to get the true picture, no company wants to tell you who they're exploiting.
