I did send you seeds they never reached you so I'll try again. Hopefully you'll get them this time and you'll be growing it yourself next year @kez001uk

@alan1111 The missing seeds 😭 I’ve tried growing a few varieties of sea holly over the years and haven’t had a single one germinate 😳

Funny enough I've never tried. I'll try some as well see how we get on. I'll have to collect seeds so it'll be end of season. @kez001uk

@alan1111 you are far better at seed growing than me so I expect you’d have no problem 😛 I’ve missed having seeds on the go this year 😔

Nothing this year why? I wouldn't agree with that Kerry the last couple of years I've done very poorly. I'm having mixed results. Some seeds are germinating great while others very poor or nothing. I did manage to collect night pholx seeds. Don't know if their viable no sign of germination yet. If they do I've a few I can send if you like @kez001uk

@alan1111 I’m trying to do a summer of seeing where I need to add colour. Hoping to get perennials to fill the gaps so I can do less seeds each year but have more time learn how to do them properly. I do too many and they all suffer for it. Gets overwhelming. Your garden never seems to look any the worse for a bad seed year 💚 you’ve just reminded me I have some to send you 🙈 I’m useless at the moment, I’m so sorry Alan 🙉

I can understand that I'm slowly heading towards more perennials myself but will always do some seeds gives me a buzz. Now I only use twice the amount of seeds as needed for the number of plants I need. Like you I use to do too many of each seed it takes up so much room with needless amounts of seedlings taking up your space, time and energy. Tks Kerry I've lots of plants in pots I can use if I have a bad year with the seeds 😉 Don't worry about the seeds so long as your OK. @kez001uk

@alan1111 I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one who gets overwhelmed with the amount they sow 🙈 will do more again next year but will give me a chance to plan better and know my numbers 😁 tried to build a garden and fill it in a short time really, and that’s been a bit much at times. But it’s almost how I want it now. Gotta video it tomorrow, now the spring cleanup is done 😂 I’ll go through my seeds and email you what I have spare so if there’s any you want I’ll get them all to you in one go
