    Default Welsh Poppy Seeds Offered

    Some people class them as weeds, but I think they're nice - espeically mixed with other poppies.

    I've just taken the a third of the seed heads off one - and have loads of seeds if anyone would like some.

    Not after anything in return.

    I also have a small number of purple granny's bonnet/aquilegia. They're from my front garden, which has various other granny's bonnets in there. I don't know much about flowers, so not sure if they'll be purple or inherit some of the other traits. I've only a few of these, but should be able to take a few more seed heads off soon as / when they dry.

    Definitely weeds but very pretty - in someone else's garden

    They look spectacular mixed in with black, red and purple poppies.

    I would love some. I like the way they turn up in unexpected places and always look so cheerful. Will trade some of my tree- peony seeds if you like.

    No probs - haven't got that many granny's bonnet seeds but will send what I have (unless I can collect some more before your envelope arrives).

    You're ok to send a SAE I presume? [I'm all out of stamps! Polly's seeds have used my last lot up]
