You'll think I'm making it up Morgana. But when I came home from work, I checked the seed was ripe enough. I've put it in a small envelope and was just checking back in my in box to get your address and saw this comment. They will be posted tomorrow!

This is the first year I've grown them IndyNo2's , but I would imagine they would self seed but I'm taking the seed heads off so I can sow them where I want them. You're welcome to some seed if you'd like them.I've got plenty. Oh, I've just realised I got your name wrong again. Just Indy from now on , I promise.

I hope it will have a grand scare crow named Paul The Gardener! That ought to scare the crows if anything did!!
Seeds on theur way . Hopefully, you'll receive them Saturday or Monday. I know there are postal strikes in some areas today but not sure where!
Be careful Morgana, when you receive them to shake them doiwn to the bottom of the small envelope before opening it as they are very small and you could have them everywhere!

Lol I would have a large life like one just with your name on it and make sure it moved too with a cackling laugh inside like my witch hanging by my front door which goes off ever time the post man comes, It petrified the life out of the virgin fitters he he he so I am sure it would frighten the birds, I will up load a picture of it and show you. I will follow your kind instructions to the letter thanks.
