    Default Comfrey Bocking 14 root, Chinese Chive and Cephalaria gigantea divisions

    I've these two plants that are spare and am looking for any divisions of:

    knautia, scabious, epimediums, black/red/white currant, blueberry, eryngium, gaura, bowls mauve/summer skies or other non-common colour wallflower.

    Thanks.

    Hi pinksky. Nice offer but you need to be a member of the forum for 3 months and have made 50 posts before swapping or asking for seeds and plants.

    Have a read of the Forum rules at https://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gr...nce_76437.html.

    Stick around for a few months, become an active member and then we'll talk swapping.

    Oops, sorry about that. Well, it'll be quite a while before I reach the 50 posts mark!

    50 is easy - one a day for 2 months, or a few interesting threads and they soon mount up.
    The others here will tell you that I post 50 a day but I couldn't possibly agree with them.

    Don't worry you'll have your 50 posts way before your 3 months are up, and VC doesn't post 50 times a day, her average since joining is only 12.5.

    Hi Pinksky, welcome to the forum.
    It’s worth trying eryngium from seed -a packet of seed costs much less than postage costs for plants....and they come up like weeds, same for scabious.

    I tried to sow Eryngium 'Miss Wilmot's Ghost' but nothing came up. I've got another E.planum this season, so hopefully, it might survive.

    Gaura and knautia are also easy from seed. Not sure if divisions would work / be worth it.
