CGS Seeds arrive

s7300195.jpg

Excitement today as my selection of seeds from the Cottage Garden Society (CGS)arrived.  In early December you get a listing of around 2000 seeds that have been donated by members and you can purchase 15 packets for £4.  There are no descriptions or photos so I end up spending hours trying to find what things are, trawling through books, seed catalogues and on the web.  Then you send your order off – however, if like me you forget and end up sending it off close to the deadline you end up with some of your first choices, some of your second and some completely strange things.  The seeds arrive in little packets with only the identifying number on, so you then have to spend time looking up the numbers to find out what you’ve got.  The anticipation is great.  This year I have all sorts from Bidens to Canna and something called Paraserianthes which I cant find anywhere.

Now I will have to think about sowing them and waiting to see what comes up and what doesnt.
