Will be able to help with the Lambs lettuce and Land Cress (especially in a couple of months time when they've seeded), also have Mizuna, good self-seeding winter salad, although better in a polytunnel. Purslane, I find is just a haven for slugs.

Perhaps interested in the tomatoes, depending on varieties, and the melon.

The white clover and gorse can be easily found- I live near lots of woodland, I'll post you a load of them if you'd like.

I have seeds from some oriental leaves - they might not be able to compete against all weeds, but if you saved the seeds, you could make sure they kept growing back.

I've got Dragons Tongue --right at the bottom
which is a mild Mustard green, and...

Tsoi Sim -
which grows really fast - harvest in 4 weeks. it grows delicious leaves and edible buds- a little like purple sprouting.. well, kinda.

hairy bitter cress seeds are ready, but I don't think land/water cress seeds are ready yet.
Jack-by-the-hedge seeds are good to grow for salad leaves- nice taste- and you can grow them nearly all year around.

I'll swap some of all of the above, for some Nine Star Broccoli (perennial) and Organic Artichoke seeds if you're interested.
