    Hi Sarah. Shall I add you to the Seed Circle for this year or are you looking to swap them now?

    OK, then you'd better go back to your other thread, 'cos this one is for the Seed Circle and we won't be swapping until the end of the year.
    Feel free to come back then, if you wish!

    So the seeds I've been collecting for this year are : Aquilegia double winky (purple and white), Erigeron karviniskanus, Thalictrum aquilegiafolium, Clary blue denim, and Himalayan blue poppy (meconopsis grandis ). The pink Japanese anenome is just starting to flower now, so I'll collect seeds from them too.

    Hope these sound OK - I'll have a hunt around at the allotment to see if there's anything else to collect.

    That sounds great fab, WPG . Have you grown Thalictrum aquilegiafolium from seed? Is there a knack?

    No probs VC, thank you for checking

    So far I have earmarked incarvillea, sweet pea percy thrower, and calendula snow princess.

    To be honest, I'm not sure NG. The thalictrum tend to self-seed a lot in my garden, so I've never tried to germinate them. The seeds are encased in an outer husk, so I reckon that soaking them overnight before sowing might work.

    Just wanted to post a photo I took today of dahlias grown from last years seed swap. I'm rather chuffed with it...never grown a dahlia in my life. It's a plant I've always avoided as I assumed they were rather difficult. But this was so easy to grow from seed, and it's giving me autumn colour when most other things are past their best. I'm a definite convert!
