      I have ordered some Aubergine Listada de Gandia and some Kohrabi. I have never grown either before.

        I have probably ordered far too many seeds for my own good; I'm blaming Bella for wrecking Christmas weekend and stranding me inside. They range from Aquilegia to Tulbaghia via Fuchsia species, climbing aconitum, Gladiolus and Liliums. Often borderline hardy and slow to germinate.

          I have ordered some veg seeds and too many tomato seeds... I am now looking at Plantworld again, and maybe also Chiltern for flower seeds...

            I have ordered
            Datura Yellow
            Datura Purple
            Hollyhock, Halo Mix
            Livingstone Daisy, sparkles mix
            Aster, pinkie
            Monstero Deliciosa
            Silky Oak
            Sensitive mimosa
            Lunaria annua

            The tropicals are mostly for one son as he loves indoor plants.

            I have over 30 different types of seeds collected from this past fall. What doesn't germinate will be ordered in 2022 for a fresh start that year.

                Not having a greenhouse now I am limited on how much I can grow. I ordered and received 3000 Aubrieta seeds a month ago. Finding a place to grow them indoors will be challenging, but where there's a will.....:)

                The only other plants I will be growing will be runner beans but I'll buy those locally off the shelf.

                  I am going to try Greek Gigantes beans this year. They are a type of runner bean that you haven’t and eat the actual bean as a pulse. Has anyone grown them before?

                      Hi Rusty, I think they are butter beans.

                            To be honest, i think the only seeds i am going to buy this year are maybe some tomato seeds (thinking about DeBerao). Everything else i have alot of leftovers from last year. Also an uncle of mine died and i got to keep a whole box of everything . I'll probably try to get ehatever was in there to sprout.

                                I wouldn't say years , you may get something this year but more likely next year. I bought a bare root phlox. p bright eyes a few years ago took it years to do anything really, I ended up digging it out I were that fed up with it. Best thing to do with phlox is to buy a decent plant and chop it up . I do have some spare ones if you'd look some ?
