If you watched Gardeners' World (still on iPlayer) you may have seen Monty Don's Writing Garden with a froth of white flowers. These were another silene (see yesterday's post) and I searched for seeds of them.
I love gypsophila but the perennial variety doesn't last here. Neither have I succeeded with crambe cordifolia which gives a similar frothy effect, (They both prefer limey soil and dry conditions and I have acid soil and wet.)
As pink campion abounds in the wild here I thought I might get the effect I'm after with the white version. I've ordered seed of silene fimbriata, silene nutans 'Confetti' and silene latifolia. All from World Seeds.
Can't wait for them to come - I love growing things from seed!
