No of seed packets

Please note - cultivars do not come true from seed, no matter how closely the seedlings may resemble their parents - the photos give an idea of how the seedlings may appear, though surprises can be very welcome! Seed listed in blue is this year's seed - we can be more generous with the older seed which will still be viable
