Magnar, you continually impress us with the range and quality of your plants ... many thanks.
May I just comment that they all appear to grow in their own allotted space and don't seem (from the photographs) to encroach on their immediate neighbours ... is this by design or are you simply fortunate enough to have ample space to spread them out?  The plants look so happy in this kind of situation.

I have a fairly big property.. about 2000 square meters, and I try to keep the plants apart, but its not always possible. Some of them grow too well  :) But when they get too big, I move them to another place.

Magnar,

That Anemone obtusiloba f patula is a real gem.

There will be seeds in my list in the autumn  :)

Magnar
I would hate to miss the opportunity to get seeds of this especially, but many others you have shown in this thread - can you please clarify when your list is available.

I collect seeds of my plants all through the season and keep them cool until the harvest season is over and I have cleaned the seeds. Some time during October the seed list will be up at my web site. Depending a little on how busy I am in the autumn. This autumn I will be tavelling to do some plant talks around Sweden and Norway, so may be the list will not be there till November. But I will announce it here on the forum. The seeds are for exchange, but I also give away for the cost of postage and packing. Last year's list is still on my web site under TRADE, if yuo would like to have a look to see what seeds I usually have. But there's not much seeds left now,, I havent had time to update it.

Please keep them coming.  Your pictures and Kristl's are my daily fix.  To see plants that I would love to grow in such perfect condition (Magnar) and plants that I will, in the main, never be able to grow (Kristl) is uplifting not demoralising.

Magnar, thank you for this picture of Eriophyton wallichii looking so natural ! It is one of our favourite plants, such a cute furry little chap, who would not love it?  8)

Art, I'm sure you grow a lot of plants that I would love to have but can't grow up here.
