Today I have been seed collecting.
I have collected the seeds of the following plants;
- Aquilegia (latin name) – Columbine. Purple and Pink varieties.
- Dianthus (latin name) – Rockery pink. White variety.
- Nigella (latin name) – Love in a mist. Light blue variety.
- Primula japonica (latin name) – Candelabra Primrose. Yellow variety.
- Primula variabilis (latin name) – Polyanthus.Yellow and red varieties.
- Viola (latin name) – Pansy. Mixed colours.
Colleen over at In The Garden Online has come up with the idea of garden bloggers exchanging seeds they collect from the plants and flowers in their gardens. I think this is a great idea but the problem is I live in the UK and Colleen lives in Michigan which makes seed swopping difficult due to the laws on exchanging seeds between countries.
Colleen and I would like to hear from anyone both in the UK and abroad who would also be interested in joining Colleen’s Gardenblogger seed exchange. So if you are interested please leave a comment here or click on this link for more information about the Gardenblogger Seed Exchange and leave a comment on Colleen’s website.
I would like to exchange the seeds I have collected as I am interested in creating an area in my garden that is made up of plants and seeds that I have exchanged with friends and fellow bloggers. BoggyWoggy gave me this idea as her Great Grandma had a “friendship garden” which was reserved for planting seeds that had been given to her.
Over the next few weeks I will be adding to my list of seeds collected as I collect new seed varieties. So watch this space for more news about seed collecting and the gardenbloggers seed exchange.
Don’t forget to leave a comment if you are interested in taking part in the seed exchange or you are interested in any of my seeds that I have collected today.
