City seeds should be standard issue. If we all carried around a handful in our pockets and scattered them as we walked, colour would slowly colonise the capital. Seeds I'm saving this year: nasturtium, foxglove, poppy, hollyhock. These are earmarked to bring some colour to the little graveyard at the end of my road next summer.
Seeds I don't need to save: red valerian - these morph quickly into fluffy fly-away things and there are new shoots sprouting from every crack in the paving; aquilegia too are appearing everywhere so I will transplant the seedlings next spring.
