BBC wildflower seeds!

If any of you managed to get hold of some of the seeds Countryfile was giving away, please be aware that the packs contained CORNCOCKLE seeds, which can be potentially fatal ( if eaten) they produce wheezing, sickness, diarrhoea etc and even a small amount is enough to kill a horse, apparantly. I have just googled corncockle and it seems that this is true. So, if you got them, I guess you'll need to watch out for them and decide what action to take. Thankfully, we didn't manage to get any.

Phew.... not feeling so guilty about forgetting to actually plant mine now! :rolleyes:

I would have sworn under oath that I planted them - keep looking at the area with disappointment.... then found the seed packet unopened tucked away at the bottom of my work bag the other day... :blink:
