Seed swap

Oh no Nut! You're in the top 2 experts on here...you're letting the side down! 

Luckily I was bored on New Year's Day and ordered 800litres of compost, some seed and some potting and came on a pallet a week ago, v.cheap. However, it's all sitting in the middle of our driveway, we look like right idiots, as there's also an unused butler sink, which I'm popping alpines in, and a bareroot mahonia I took from work 

I've ordered my new greenhouse 😄

Tracey, just don't feel pressured to learn all the names, I learnt my first lot, by trying to identify my favourite plants, the rest just stuck in my head, without even realising it  Even common names are better than nothing and these are surprisingly descriptive of the plants. 

If you're more keen in veg, you'll probably want to start with them ultimately. Have you sowed a lot from seed yet?

If you're on iPhone and iPad that can make it come out like that Tracey. How bigs your garden? You could grow any perennial you desired, what are your favourites? And us lot will try and supply with with the information you need and I know I've got a few packets I wouldn't mind sharing

Macropetala wesselton for me Stacey, it's gorgeous!  Although, I don't have huge knowledge of clematis by any means, but just makes you feel happy

sending my condolences to your plants Star, I'm pretty sure I've lost all my penstemons and gladioli. 

However, I do have a hebe still in flower and a gypsophila raised from seed last year

Hiya Marilyn, is it a raised bed you have, as this could have a huge effect on your chrysanths?

Prehaps you could go for a swim in it Clari? 

Thats me done for today, just sowed 67 packets of Echinacea seed, 8 straight species and 59 cultivars! Don't particularly want to look at another seed for the next few days,methinks I'll put some membrane down instead!
