Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 18/09/2014 at 17:02

I have some echinacea, and I will have some sweet peas, that sort of appeared in my garden this year for some unknown reason, I didn't plant them! But the bees liked them! I think I have some black petunia seeds ready, along with some dahlias coming along, they aren't fancy, but bee friendly it seemed as there's always one in them, they sort of look like raspberry ripple in colour!

 I guess at this moment, on my wish list are sedum cuttings, I posted earlier in the week how I wanted to set up a terrium or however you blimmin spell it, not found one but I did find a large glass dome which will do the job nicely. I'm not sure how you'd post cuttings though!

This thread moves so quickly I didn't even see you'd all replied to me! I'll take anything really As for seeds I'll take a looksee in my 'inventory' for duplicates. I've some stamps lying around anyway...

Probably nothing that will excite you experienced lot!

Succulents & Sedums

my local garden centre are selling them off cheaply currently. I imagine you could take several cuttings from one plant.

I hope there's some left by the weekend as Ive got myself a large jar I'd like to grow a couple in.

such a divide of opinions! I think they're lovely, and as I said, i'd like plenty of unusual containers for my garden, is it fairygirl who has tin baths?? A chap grows his carrots i baths at the allotment

It's not a large one, and we could collect it in the car as it's only around the corner

I think maybe I should let the auction play out, hopefully not too many people are looking for things like this at this time of year.

Am I too late to this? Not sure what I can swap I have that many, but know OH has firm grips on all the edibles! I have some dupes of flowers, and a wildflower seed carpet I've no use for, a couple packets of wildflower seeds I probably wont use this year.

think OH wants it for herbs and the such... typical!

Would I get much luck at a restoration yard place? I've never been to one, and I've always wanted to, I like the idea of unusual planters at the back of the garden.
