Free gifts ...

Self set flowers in the garden are like free gifts - my garden here in the New Forest has been beset with self set Aquilegia vulgaris (grannies bonnets) in a mixture of dark pastel colours - free gifts from Mother Nature. Now they are all setting seed and I am planning to spread the joy, collecting the seed heads, leaving them to dry in the greenhouse and popping them in envelopes for customers and friends. 

Free gifts and free plants makes us happy giving the garden a naturalistic feel. Other marvellous self set plants here are Buddleia, Erigeron and Valerian. Spread the joy of your garden - share seeds and small plants with family and friends  - say it with flowers - free flowers!
