Love and light Asilvert. Lol. I pop up every now and again lol. The Solstice is almost upon us. Time of the dark becoming the light and will be out watching for the sun rise to welcome home an old friend.
Am I correct in saying you are a fellow follower?

I have to say though...Yew berries are not actually poisinous! The flesh is edible and is a cross of strawberry and raspberry. Its the seeds that are poisinous. NOT THAT I ADVISE TO TRY!!!

You can find many a good munch in a hedge lol. If...you know what you are looking for. I am found often roaming with a willow basket chopping through what I have found lol

Brilliant Gardengirl. Yours are ready here in their little wage slip bag lol. I'm glad everyone's enjoying it. I felt a little disheartened by the first couple of posts but just goes to show...Its a great way to get seeds like you say and the bit I like is that when you buy a pack and have some left over...you can pass them on rather than them going to waste

Thanks again. Think this could be a yearly event now (I hope)

The Mayberry or Hawthorn is a stunning hedge. Its berries give food to the birds and can also be made into wine as the flowers can. It is tradition to decorate the Mayberry on the Summer Solstice with garlands of flowers and ribbons. Its also known as the 'Gaurdian' in the tree world.

Beware of an Oak, It draws the stroke,  Avoid the Ash, It courts a flash, Creep under the Thorn, It will save you from harm.

Wee bit paganism about the Thorn

Hi Asilvert,

Glad you have had a good day in the green house. I love spending time in mine. I am really interested in the love in the mist you have to offer. Is there anything you are looking for???

Hey Gardengirl

That sounds fab They are really tasty in salads too. Brilliant. I will PM you my address and give me yours and I can get them in the post. I'm really pleased that this seems to have triggered the reaction for cheap ways of producing plants

Your experiences with Astrantia

Verdun, That's great. Thank You for the advice. I'm hoping to go with a purple, white and black colour scheme but that will probably change due to my will power lol. Nigelcoad, I will do that this weekend. I have a couple of seeds I managed to snuffle from my sisters garden and really hope they take. I will let you know how I get on. Thanks folks

Chilli Lover...I love the wee growly face hehehe. I agree Verdan, the variegated variety is stunning as well. And Joe the Gardener has a very good point. You don't want little people getting hurt or pet owners with vets bills due to eye injury or infected cuts from spiky hedges.

Wow guys...I have been away from my laptop due to illness but am really happy that so many of you are up for a seed swap

I have loads of fox gloves (mixed & white), delphiniums (Blue, white and purple collection) Wild Viola mix of dark and light, Forget-Me-Not, Native Cowslips, Campanula, Blue and white (Think they are called Canterbury Bells???) and a few mixed Dianthus.

Im looking for plants that are really good for bees and butterflies or cottage style,
