So, using the Flickr gallery group, I made my choices. All seeds ordered from Chiltern Seeds and all except the salvia sclarea inspired by James Fenton's list. 

I've been meaning to grow that salvia for ages now. It's been a while.

If I do this right, there should be enough plants to share with friends and enough to sell to the local garden supply shop which should, at least, cover the cost of the seeds.


Another thing that was on my mind today - it was our father's birthday. Seamus was born on this day 99 years ago. Happy birthday old lad, wherever you are.

Beautiful stuff, indeed.
And is he hoisting a pint somewhere.

If he is, it's a pint of Bailey's Irish Cream. He was practically teetotal for most of his life but developed a fondness for cream liqueurs in his old age.
