  • The user and all related content has been deleted.
  • I am always ready to take part with trial seeds but do not have a heated greenhouse.  Would love to share

  • You are right Nutcutlet.......if only I had found them earlierimage

    For the Aquilegia people, you have 2 or 3 weeks at a push........consider this as Black Saturday need to say NOWimage

  • don't need a heated greenhouse for many of the seeds you will see on this thread.  The swaps will run for several months anyway so you just pick and chooseimage

    I find aquilegias sown as late as March will germinate ok. If not, left to August and you have little seedlings to overwinter.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
