    Does your seed catalogue have an annual mix in support of your timely and excellent TV pollination campaign? I garden on a thin downland soil over chalk.

    Now I shall definitely have to order the catalogue, if only to enjoy the pictures! It will join my towering bedside pile of gardening books and catalogues. I do think that the prices look a bit high for me but if the seeds prove to be very successful it must balance out in sales.

    I love SR’s catalogue and seeds too, read mine just before bed so I can dream flowers! How come you get 15% off-are you a good customer? I have several of her books and have done a cutting patch in the past. Have a spare patch of ground at present-was going to lay a patio but can’t afford it this year, so am thinking of doing a cutting patch there. Part of it is a bit shady(but not dry) due to yew tree nearby-can you recommend anything, annual or perennial that I can grow from seed? Love your flower list and site-found you on UK veg growers.

      Sorry to butt in on your conversation, Jan, but Hesperis (sweet rocket) does well in shade – tall, beautiful, airy, sweet-smelling, self seeds… Both the white and pink are gorgeous. (Other) Jan x

      …Nicotiana can handle a little shade…and salvia…and as Jan mentions…hesperis…I imagine euphorbioa would too as a foliage filler…but generally annuals like loads of sun…
      I’ll have a much better idea at the end of this season as i’m trying some varieties in a shaded area of the higgledy garden…
