Every year we take produce to several of the elderly folks who live

actual garden produce and we miss gardening so much.
Good on ya' for encouraging others to do this.
I hope it was the compost bin!
I've been very pleased with Nicky's seeds but have had problems with some of
the big suppliers.
I've also made mistakes in orders I've sent to customers (not
horticultural). Nobody's perfect.
I'm sure we have all made mistakes but usually if i do at least

buddleja seeds very tiny (as in nemesia)? I don't want to spend age

In answer to other worthy members i have saved half of my lettuces an

fair that comes along! (I didn't put all of them in the compost bin!)
will give them to whoever wants them along with a surplus of purpl
