Seed Swaps

Foxglove "Excelsior Mixed"

These were some extremely neglected seedlings sown last year, which never made it out of their seed tray (despite being sown way back in 2011).

As an experiment, I planted them in a shady corner next to the Dicentra and the Rose that might be “Love and Peace”
