We have a few of these in our garden,  this one has grown in front of our ivy fence.  I assume they are wild plants but I really like them and love the colour of the flowers.  Does anyone know what it is please?

Honesty is a garden plant that often seeds itself into the wild - you'll probably recognise it's seed cases http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/howtogrow/3308038/How-to-grow-Honesty.html

there are white and variegated versions.

So if I collect these seeds will they grow if I plant them in a different place?

Shouldn't bother collecting them Poppy, just let them seed themselves around.
