This week has been…

a rather seedy one so far.

I’ve been collecting flower seeds on the plot and sorting them at home.  I spend about an hour most days doing the later switching between the pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites, cosmos Sonata White and sunflowers Musicbox, with some the latter shown here.

I’m also collecting the runner bean Red Rum seeds which were in pods not suitable for eating.  These will be kept and used through the winter.

 

Further to my comment last Sunday I placed a small order with Chiltern Seeds for some flower seeds.

I’ve also placed a small order with MoreVeg for most of the vegetable seeds that I want for next year.

I’ve no doubt that I’ll be ordering more over the coming months,  swapping some with fellow growers and buying a few packets at the horticultural society trading shed once the new stock of Kings Seeds arrives.

Have a good weekend!

    Good work Flighty!! I just leave all of them in and wait until the spring to clear old/dead plants and then see what comes up…..bit lazy! 🙂

    I’m a bit lazy where saving my own seed in concerned but it does make sense. I shall look forward to hearing about the seeds you’ve ordered and the varieties you’ll be growing next year.

    There are seed exchanges I’ve seen online. Not sure if they’re just here in the U.S. or in the UK too. A lot seem to favour “heirloom” seeds. Unfortunately, I don’t get my act together in time to collect and sort. Good for you!

    This is what I call premeditated plotting…xxx

    I suppose it’s lots of fun saving and sorting our own seeds. And swapping our surplusses, whether saved or bought ones with others. Enjoy!
    Thanks and same to you!

    Cute. Seedy in deedy. Speaking of which, when I cleared up that corner of misfits, some of your pot marigold seeds took the opportunity to sprout. I’m looking forward to their naturalizing that corner.
