Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

Xerochrysum bracteatum syn. Helichrysum bracteatum, Bracteantha bracteata

I sowed strawflower yesterday but I'm trying to sow them directly outdoors. I'm running out of windowsill space and I don't think Pudgy will give up her part of the windowsill 😅

@ublaszko Yes I’ve still got loads of seeds to sow directly but need to tidy the beds up first. Will probably add some of these too.

👍👍 I've started tidying up and mulching the beds yesterday but only got one done so far as I wanted to get the seeds in already.

Thanks Jeff @jeatacake for #seedcollecting these #strawflower seeds. Have I got the right encyclopaedia entry? Thanks for the card. It felt like my Birthday 😊😂 15/10/19

Ha ha ha! That was just an added (but unintended) bonus! 🎂 Yes, they are called "strawflower" on here. I'm just showing my age using Latin 😂
