    I have just picked the seed heads off my Francoa Petite bouquet .  Bridal Wreath. I have not done this as a swap before.

    I am not too good with seeds . I am sure I will have plenty. I know about packing them in paper bags or envelopes etc .

    Would it be best to just send one of the long seed head stems if anyone wanted some. The seeds themselves seem minute.

    One or two of the seed heads on the stem have just started to open  but there are several more.

    Any thoughts from those who know what they are doing.

    I've no idea what I'm doing weedy but I should imagine a stem would work if someone wanted share.

    Here's what I have to offer. I haven't very many of each as a lot came from a T&M offer and they were very mean but I should have enough to share.

    Sweet rocket (purple)

    Aquilegia Sweet rainbows

    Cat mint

    Achillea Summer Berries F2

    Aquilegia x hybrida Firecracker

    Delphinium Magic fountains

    Candelabra primula hybrids mixed

    Californian poppy  Sunshine Mixed

    Poppy "Ladybird"

    Ice Plant (mesembryanthemum) Sparkles Mixed

    Greater knapweed

    Evening primrose


    The following are seeds I've collected from my own plants so may not come true.

    Aquilegia (random)

    Digitalis (white)

    Primula (Millar's crimson)

    Lupin (Gallery red)

    Lupin (lemon/yellow)

    Lupin (pink)
