My Seedy Parcel
I received a lovely parcel containing seeds and more from Suse from the beautiful west coast of Scotland. When Suse contacted me I asked her to “Surprise me…” She did that in a lovely way.
I received some carefully packaged and annotated seed packets. On one side Suse wrote the name and variety and on the other some sowing, planting & usage tips. The seeds are just what I was after: some new to me varieties to try out.
Also, Suse had very thoughtfully included some other plants for me as I had told her I was always keen to try out new cuttings. The first is a small plant of Fuschia Magellanica Versicolour that I hope turns out this beautiful .
And Suse also included some lovely plugs of heather plants including two tree heathers. The fuschia and heathers are already in their alloted spots and I hope they feel at home this far south. Thanks very much Suse 🙂
I will blog about the progress of Suse’s generous gifts and also some of the seeds I received from Lucy in last August’s exchange.
Seedy Penpals Updates on other blogs
This time round, I’m not using a link widget. Instead, I’ll post a summary and a link to all the Seedy Parcel blog updates and progress reports that I’m told about.
My Seedy Penpal, Kate at Ty Hen Cottage, offers a lovely seasonal Marmalade and Fruit Cake along with a peek at the parcel I sent her. Seeds, some tubers, a plant and a card. I’m looking forward to seeing the results…
