    I'm not sure which species / variety they are - amethystinum? Planum? Leaves form a low clump of slightly variegated foliage and flower stems are about 2 feet plus, and very spiky.

    Default Dynamite

    Polemonium Caeruleum Bambino Blue (Jacobs Ladder)

    Sweet Pea (Galaxy Mixed)

    Originally from My Fothergill's they say "Very good established mixture. Early blooming prolific and long lasting. A reliable performer.

    Sweet Peas Probably the nation’s favourite! These beautifully scented blooms make dwarf hedging or can climb up trellis and are super cut flowers. We know the sweet pea has a special place amongst our gardeners’ affections and we’re delighted to offer a huge range of varieties to you. Nothing can beat the sweet pea for all round performance - garden decoration and wonderful fragrance in the garden and the vase!

    Height: 180cm(6ft)
    Plant Class: Hardy Annual (HA).
    Habit: Climbing.
    Sow: Mar-May"

    Festuca Glauca (Blue Fescue)

    Foxglove (Pam’s Split)

    Seed originally from Thompson and Morgan they say "A spectacular selection from Digitalis Pam's Choice. This variety is slightly shorter and is multi-stemmed from the base, producing a longer-lasting and impressive display of white blooms with speckled throats. Each flower of Digitalis Pam's Split has an unusual 'split petal' effect, giving them a slightly ruffled look. Eye-catching in borders or cottage gardens. Digitalis Pam's Split will grow in any garden soil in full sun or part shade.
    Useful Links:

    Ideal For Cottage Gardens, Wildlife Gardens, Cut Flower Garden, Woodland Garden
    Hardiness Hardy
    Position In Sun or semi shade, Dappled shade
    Height Up to 120cm (47.2in)
    Spread Up to 45cm (17.7in)
    Ease of Sowing Easy for all
    Ease of Aftercare Easy for all
    Awards RHS plants for pollinators

    Sow seed from January to May on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed compost and place at a temperature of 18-29C (65-85F). Lightly cover the seed with vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 14-30 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 45-60cm (18-24in) apart. An early sowing will occasionally produce flowers in the same year."

    Allium (Border Mixed)

    Application: Valuable for planting in small groups in the border. Long lasting cut flower.
    Position: Full sun or light shade
    Soil requirement: Adaptable to all well drained soils.
    Cultivation: Hardy in all areas but protection during winter is recommended. Use a cover of straw or other material. Late planting in autumn prevents bulbs from making early shoots which can be damaged by frost.

    Allium

    Unknown, possibly Globemaster.

    You are fine to add or remove what seeds you want to send I am just being eager. There are still a few peeps to confirm. You are fine to post on this thread now it is only so I can reserve the starting posts to keep the seedy core bit together.

    If anyone has pics or info on their seeds that would be great and I will edit the relevant posts.
