      Yep :yay: "Your Wales wildflower seeds", love how it's put the Welsh writing before English.

      Contains: common knapweed, cornflower, corn chamomile, corn cockle, corn marigold, corn poppy, hedge bedstraw, meadow buttercup, oxeye daisy, red campion, ribwort plantain, viper's-bugloss and yarrow.

      Did you get the same @"M" ?

        Yes, those are the ones. I was a bit miffed when I saw the corn cockle ... I've only just sown a packet of those :heehee: could have saved myself the bother!

        Have you sown yours?

          Ahh sods law! No not yet, I'm tempted to throw them on the railway banking on the weekend when we have a bit of rain. Nothing has grown there before when I've thrown seed at it.. so not sure what to do with them. Where will you put yours?

              Nice one woo! :thumbsup: I did chuckle at the "grewitmyselfie" ... may even enter :whistle:

              I've already "put" them :heehee:
              I was waiting for Mr "M" to be on rest day (oh, the irony :roflol: ) to move the solanum to the back fence. In time, that should block the view from the new build that has gone up behind the fence. It is the area the hens have the run of, plus that is where I have my loganberry, tayberry and gooseberry bushes, so, I extended the cordon to include the newly transplanted solanum and then thought :ideaIPB: the wild seeds!!! Sprinkled them on the soil, gave the shrub and seeds a watering and now have :fingers crossed: It is the sunniest part of the garden so I'm on the optimistic side of hopeful :heehee: If they grow - and I have no reason to suppose they won't - any buzzies will also visit the fruit bushes and voila! double bonus :dbgrtmb:

                    Mine arrived too and I added them to my wildflower meadow which I sowed a couple of weeks ago.

                      How are your wild seeds growing?
                      Mine have just sprung to life ...

                      CIMG0051.JPG

                      ... which I am delighted about because, the solanum I moved to the back fence at the same time I sowed these hasn't made it *sighs*.

                      Still these little lovelies have and that is great! :dbgrtmb:

                          Will you be moving soon?
                          Could you sow them in a pot so you could take them with you, perhaps?

                            :grphg: :grphg: :grphg: I can empathise! Ok, so prioritise the plants which are most important to you and if that means sacrificing some, so be it. The beauty of plants are: we can get more of them :grphg:
