    Hi Jed - sorry to hear you are having difficulty uploading photos. Are you using a very old version of the Internet Explorer browser? Along with many other web sites we no longer support them.

    If so, can I suggest you upgrade to Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, which was introduced with Windows 10. Photo uploads will work fine and you'll get a much faster online experience generally.

    BTW you can then edit the post above and upload the photo, by clicking on the little pen icon top right of the post when logged in. We'd love to see it.

    Hello Jed, gosh they sound good - do you still have any seedlings available? I make an annual pilgrimage to the Botanic Gardens in Cambridge to gawp at their jade vine - has your's flowered??

    Hi Julian,
    Just posted a few for you but this is a "rescue mission".
    They have been drying out for a few weeks because I recycle compost for potting on or soil improvement.
    Result is dried out plants but because the beans were huge I hope they may be resurrected. Suggest you soak the roots for a day then pot individually in 4" pots, just a regular multi-purpose so remains of seed just below surface. Water well initially then just keep moist warm and plenty of light. Hopefully buds will break then prune back.
    Good luck, nothing to lose!
    Cheers! Jed.

    Hi Jed, gosh how exciting thank you - do let me know how much I owe you for postage. If you like climbers, I have seeds of a wonderful ipomoea (think it's Black Knight) and have just acquired a senecio confusus (but haven't started propagation yet)

    No problem over postage, your challenge is to revive the poor things!.
    Cheers! Jed.

    Hi Jed / All,

    I'm new to this site (first day actually) so still need to create my profile but can hardly believe this post and just need to ask - do you or does anyone else here still have any seeds or cuttings?

    Hi all, are there any seedlings going? In the UK and really struggling to find any samples.
