Hi old chippy, I've seen your name on the talkback threads but never seen you on the forum before. Welcome. I agree about not being afraid to try. Sometimes we learn more from getting it wrong than from getting it right

I am going to have some seed of roscoea cautleoides Kew beauty, shortly. These have  to be sown fresh like Hellebores and take up to three years to flower. I am looking for some yellow rattle. Also I have aquilegia black Barlow type.also a frilly red one.

Fidgetbones, I've harvested some more yellow rattle and I'd love to try the roscoea please, I'll PM you.

I know you have an acanthus you saved for me, sorry I haven't organised collection. I hope to get your way but if in the meanwhile anyone else wants it, let them have it. You can't look after it for ever

Only the small species tulips persist for me. Hyacinths survive for years and keep flowering, possibly not such big flowers but they suit me
