    I don't quite know yet, depends what I can get growing! Maybe, Nicotiana Lime green, haven't seen that mentioned, and Rudbeckia cherry brandy.
    Can you save seed from Dahlia tubers? I've got an absolute stunner caller Jescot Julie, could try and isolate one of those and hand pollinate.
    Also growing a few other Dahlia, another Rudbeckia, Zinnia, Antirhinnum, Cosmos, Ageratum, a few Salvias, Cerinthe, Erynginum, Marigolds, Nasturtium, Sweet peas, Calendula and a Mexican meadow mix that looks quite interesting. Lots of choice.

    Fingers crossed for gloriosa superba, finally a year where they have germinated - yay, for heated propagators. Also love in a puff 'cos if that name is not good enough you can have 'Cardiospermum halicacabum'. Sorry I have been quite juvenile this week

    Runs off to hide

    Oh, before running. Special thanks to whoever sent the cerinthe last year the germination is fantastic I have struggled in the past.

    If anyone is interested and want any I have a large amount of gazania seeds I have collected., mainly yellow and orange. Also plenty of blue muscari bulbs.

    I have a cheeky request (if you don't ask, you don't get ) does anyone in the circle grow Japanese anemones which I could pinch seed from please? Was given some last year but I don't think they were ripe.

    Will happily send extra seeds of surprise or anything I mention during the year

    Yes, that's not a problem, I'll add them to my list of seeds to collect this year NG (though I just grow the pink variety, maybe someone else grows the white ones?)
