    Hi Jacqui,

    I have some chamomile seedlings. Can I bring some when I visit you to return the box?

    Fantastic, Jane.

    I actually passed through heading south to the interislander just before Christmas, and did ring your number but can’t recall what happened – think I got the answerphone. Was toying with the idea of calling in but it was very early, about 8.30am, so may not have been that welcome! 🙂

    Hi Jacqui,

    I have some asters, plus purchased Heleniums x 3 last year – Borage grows wild in the vege patch so I will try to keep you some seed, Valerian grows on the Wgtn hills and the Manawatu gorge screes as well. When next you are in Manawatu I will give you pieces to take home.

    Still looking and hoping for:

    Alstroemeria
    Borage
    Helenium “Autumn Glory”
    Michaelmas Daisy (aster)
    Valerian

    Have swan plants to swap with…

    Also saw a beautiful shrub, smothered with miniscule white flowers, about 1mm or 2mm across, habit was drooping (so it looked like it had been covered by snow). So beautiful – and of course I saw a Monarch sitting on it, so that made it even more special.

    Hi guys

    Thanks for the heads up — yes please to the Alstromeria, Heather. I think you’re right with the name too, Blutterfy (Helenium). Common names can be a pain! But I thought it was probably a chrysanthemum or an aster.

    So can anyone supply the others I want? And does anyone want what I’ve got?

    call in next time in town and I will give you some Alstromeria.

    blutterfy is right and sometimes seaview have the Autumn Glory I will try to remember to ask for you.Common names can be confusing several plants having the same name.

    I have a yacon growing too grows and flowers like j atichokes with orangy-yellow flowers.

    Hi Jacqui – great idea! I think your ‘Autumn Glory’ may be a Helenium. Heleniums are quite hard to get here (more common in Britain) but there is the odd one about, alas I have none. Parva plants had a couple a while back – and they have an online catalogue : )

    I can however send you a bit of Alstroemeria psittacina. It isn’t one of the showy hybrids, but is a good doer. Need your address again if you are keen – J

    Autumn Glory could be one of the following:
    – Rudbeckia nitida (Asteraceae)
    – Acer rubrum (Aceraceae)
    – Hebe
    – Leptospermum scoparium (Manuka Tree)
