    I've started stocking up on annuals for next year to keep me busy and I have fond memories of this exotic looking plant but the price of seed seems exorbitant especially when you factor in postage from major seed suppliers... does anyone have some surplus this year that they can share? I'm happy to pay a small amount.

    Many thanks,

      I have loads of ricinus seed from @noisette47, for the seed swap last year, she sent so many, I will include some in this years parcel, but we can spare some. pm me your address and I will pop some in the post.

          Most of the rest of their seeds are well priced too - provided you need to buy (or can share with mates) in "reasonable bulk" :)

            I think the bulk, if not all of my seeds will come from Moles for next year - they should have you on commission @Kristen as its all your doing....... :biggrin:
