Following the completion of the Greenhouse Project (see earlier post) I contact my favourite seed supplier and ordered their lucky dip. If you survey the catalogue of Chiltern Seeds you can imagine that their lucky dip contains some unusual items.
I bought a pack of ‘lottery mixture’ which contained lots of seed – maybe 700 or so.
It was late in the season to start germinating seeds for this summer but nevertheless I set to it and obtained many young plants for my efforts. As a gardening novice however I’ve no idea what I have grown.
This is one of the most remakable specimens. As soon as it left the pot for the flower bed it shot up. But what is it?
