I’ve already added to my seed collection with borage (blue and white), more cosmos, more Ammi majus and the remarkable annual climber, Cobaea scandens (purple and white varieties). Sweet peas I already have though I may be tempted yet into another purchase.

I’d better take a proper look at my seed tin before I commit myself to covering every possible surface in the house with seed trays and a dusting of compost.
