Plant ID help please

Just goes to show what a fab website this is because of the folks on here. I ventured on to the seed swap thread only to find Granma has some Lychnis seeds going and is going to kindly post some to me.  Just lovely. They will be all the more cherished knowing they have come from someone on here.

That is so kind! Thank you so much. I'll definately start collecting seed and doing the same. Really is very much appreciated.

Hi Granma - would it be possible to get some  Lychnis Caledonia from you at all please? I haven't ventured into the seed swap thread before so I'm not sure how it works. Can I send you a stamped self addressed envelope? Thanks so much. Discovered Lychnis only yesterday when I posted a plant ID question. Love this web site!

 I've found this one Obelixx. I haven't ever bought seeds off eBay but might give this a go.

I bought a few plants from a garden centre that's closing down. Now about to make a cuppa and get the big book out to look up what I have bought!  I love buying random plants as every now and then it results in discovering a new favourite that I'd never have normally purchased.
