Morning all,

Just for fun!...

If you could hold a National Collection of any plant what would you choose? 

I think mine would be either Alliums or Echinacea.

    @Hostafan1 how many varieties have you got? 
  • Hostafan1Hostafan1 Posts: 26,610
    I think about 170 varieties. 
    I have over 1,000 plants in my polytunnel which all need splitting now.

    Oh @Hostafan1 you are obsessed. 😉😁
    For myself Aquilegia I think would be high on my list. I love bleeding hearts but there only seems to be two, can hardly call that a collection.😀

    @Vegplotmummy please may I have the Echinacea and you can have the alliums. I've just planted my first this year and I love them so I've now planted my second and third. I have seeds on order too.... :blush:

    ETA and now I've ordered some jumbo plugs too. Look what you've done!!!!

    I seriously thought about creating a Ligularia collection as , the last time I looked, there isn't one.

    I don't envy you having to split that many plants! 😯
