    Thank you. I love them regardless.
    Oh dear - it seems that I’m the one who is confused!.
    If you got the golden palm seeds, then everyone else must have got “the other palm” that I was given.
    Sorry!!!

    After soaking for 3 days mine has sunk to the bottom of the mug this morning which I believe is decent news and means it's now hydrated so into a bag of vermiculite today. Anyone else got any news?

    I've potted my palm in compost with half of it sticking up, and covered it in vermiculite. It's also kept indoors, or the poor thing would flood and drown!

    I’d like to but as doing the other swaps now I don’t want to run out of seeds can I let you know once I see how well I’ve saved them?

    This swap is really for leftover commercial/bought seeds, Chrissy. I'll amend the guidance because I don't want to conflict with the Seed saving circles.
