Also recommended - http://www.realseeds.co.uk/ - a seed company that produces non-F1 seeds, so you have reliable plants from one generation to the next. They also encourage and show you how to harvest your own seeds.

Nah, never liked capers! I have heard you can eat them, but never fancied it. We do sometimes eat the leaves as salad - very nice, and even the flowers.

Trying to grow wild flower seeds.  The grass is too long  for them to establish  outside  and they are germinating very poorly inside.     Any tips on how to grow them?    I have put some poppy seeds from the garden in the freezer as well as  some  bought mixed seed. I have ordered some peat plugs, particularly for the poppy seeds  because they are so small.

They are very good chopped with pickled gherkins in mayonnaise: fresh Tartare sauce!

Lidl

reasonably priced seeds now available again 
 fine seeds  @ 29p each or 5 for a 1
 have worked for me the last few years
a   -1-     on the packet     

    other larger seeds available
but at higher prices  with other numbers on the pack
still a great deal cheaper than elsewhere as far as I can see.
