No. This is my first time. I was going to do a stall kinda thing last year and a plant swap to raise money for perenial but moved house. I am always left with so many seeds and there are only so many you can scatter sow in the wild before you think...someone else might be able to use these lol. Im really pleased at the outcome of this thread

Apples best but i often wonder if silver birch or beach would be good as they are hosts to many fungi.

Rosemary is a great insect repelant. Putting lemon juice on the skin in the sun may cause excesive burning. If you use it on your hair and go out in the sun it will lighten. I rub the inside edge of my bike helmet lining with rosemary keeps bugs away. Boil some water...and infuse some sprigs in it for 20 mins or so. Strain it...leave to cool and put it in a spray bottle. It works well.

Well, I have gotten a little carried away this weekend lol. I had a wee parcel in the post full of seeds. White sage, Mugwort, Jacobs Ladder, Bergamont, Corriander, Verbena and many more. You would think I had an entire estate lol. I am however, looking for some Southernwood. It was my Nana's favorite plant and wasn't able to fetch mine when I moved. Anyone got any???

Does the false sunflower grow as tall as the 'real' sunflower Jackie Frost?
