Last week the first of the 2010 seed catalogues landed on my doormat and at least one on-line supplier has updated their website.
I’ve checked what I still have in my seed box and listed the ones that I’ve collected from some of the flowers I grew this year.
Needless to say that I’ve already done wants lists for next year, which have been continually added to and amended!
More of the plot will be taken up by vegetables so I’m having trying to restrict myself somewhat to flowers that I really want to grow. However they will include the annuals calendula/pot marigolds, helianthus/sunflowers ( only five different varieties!), lathyrus/sweetpeas and tropaeolum/nasturtiums. I’ll be buying mine via the Horticultural Society shop, which gets all it’s seeds from King Seeds, who I notice lists linaria maroccana Fairy bouquet which didn’t regrow this year so I’m going to have to buy another couple of packets.
I’m planning on growing the same ten or so vegetables from seed that I did this year, but trying some different varieties. Once again I’ll be buying them from MoreVeg as I can get all I need for around £10- .
Yesterday on the Allotments 4 All forum I noticed that Helen was offering some nasturtium Moonlight which I couldn’t resist, so I’m swopping them for some of my calendula Art Shades/Sherbert Fizz. I didn’t join the first of the new pass-the-(seed)-parcels that’s starting up but I’m sure that there’ll be others and plenty more giveaways/swop offers as well.
All I have to do is keep saying that I am not a seedoholic!
