I don't know where yesterday and today went. I said several times both days that I must take a few photos but when I finally got around to doing it, it was dark outside.
I printed off the seed pouches that Rachel informed us of from the web site www.blossomswap.com/envelopes.html The large ones are very handy I think; the 3 small ones are a bit too small. Anyway, I have so many seeds which need to be sorted, I started today as soon as the dinner was on.
I was wondering could I offload some of them on those of ye who are going to Carlow on Sunday? I have so many that I will never get to plant them. In particular I have Ligularia dentala and Crocosmia 'Lucifer'. Apologies for not being able to put the common name for Ligularia but I don't know it myself. It was Rachel & Bill (Headgardener) who identified it for me earlier this year.
In case any of you don't know Ligularia as a plant, it is a lovely plant. It's leaves are purple underneath with green on top with a yellow flower. It comes up every year, is frost hardy and so far with me, the only thing that does it damage is slugs and snails. Touch wood - aphids don't attack it.
