seed swap mark 2

nutcutletnutcutlet Posts: 27,166

I found the other seed swap but couldn't get to the bit where I could add a post.

Today I can offer Digitalis laevigata and D. parviflora. I would say that the laevigata is less hardy than the others I grow. The ones that are in the garden look a bit sick.

Also, Nicotiana sylvestris,  N. Affinis, both white smellies and a small greeny coloured one that might be anything.

Bupleurum fruticosum, possibly the only shrubby umbellifer (or whatever we call them now)

And Codonopsis clematidea

Any takers?

    Hi, I'd love to try the Digitalis laevigata and the Codonopsis clematidea image  

    The only things I could offer in exchange would be some very baby cyclamen hederifolium alba - we are likely to be buried under them in a few years time.  If you'd like some I could bring them when visit MIL later in the year?

    Lovely, can I have some bells of Ireland please. I tried them once before and didn't do very well but they look so interesting I'll have another go. And what's white sage?Is it sage with white flowers? I'd like a few of those as well please

    Do you want some of all the nicotianas. I'd recommend the affinis above the sylvestris. It's shorter but flowers earlier and this is setting up to be a short season. i sowed today and most years it would have been mid March.

  • Sounds great to me Nut, Thanks.

    The white sage is a little more delicate here. It will need to be over wintered in a greenhouse or collect the seeds. Its from south America and its the type the native Indians use for their rituals. I make smudge sticks out of it. 

    I had the same problem with Bells of Ireland last couple of times but mine have come up in a matter of a couple of days.

    They are packed and ready to go for you image
