      Hi Julie…I am not sure…I may be changing my strategy and only delivering locally to Cornwall. I will decide next week…where does your Mum live?

        My mum lives in Gloucester and I’m in London. She’s just had a hip operation so I’m tugging at your heart strings! She has a large garden that she keeps up together herself and she planted some of your seeds and was really delighted with the results as they were something different. If you can’t I’ll understand and will have to buy another batch of seeds for her to plant!!

          Julie my dear lady I would of course send her some…but in order to I would have to buy a wholesale batch of flower boxes…as you can’t buy them singly…and I am unlikely to use the other 49! Is she a ‘silver surfer’…does she visit the website? I could send her some virtual flowers and give her a photographic tour of the flower patch. :)

      That’s the one! I think Fiddleneck may be an American common name…but it’s a jolly one. Otherwise it is known in some parts of the UK as Purple Tansy.
