Would i be better getting a few seed trays and seed compost and starting my seeds in them,then putting them in my shed next to the window.would this give me a better chance.



Thats a great idea worth a try that way, I grow lots of seeds in tray,  all you need to do is plant in your raised bed

I may end up with lots of Acanthus seeds to swap later in year

the sun has helped have lots of flower spikes and seed pods forming

Hello, not done a lot of seed collecting this year but will have a look in my tin to see what I've got. Gardengirl this looks like like a lovely plant, do you think you would have any left? What are you looking for?

Had a very nice time looking back on that thread nut My cleomes were great this year and the verbenias bon and my rudebekias are still flowering

Hollie hock will add you to the list for acanthus pods as still on plant not ready yet,

sorry for the lack of sowing instructions.I would personally start sowing in spring,but try a small amount now and overwinter in a sheltered place.I haven't sown some of them before as I have either collected seeds from somewhere else or taken seeds off a mature plant bought from a nursery.

Are you changing your name on a daily basis now diddydoit aka giggalo aka flirt!?

cooty and flowersforbees. I thinkI may be waiting for something that isn't going to happen. This bupleurum falcatum is just not making seed as it usually does. I'll post the rest and follow uo with the Bupleurum if it ever gets there. I'll PM you both when the forum's working properly again. I've PMd 2 people who haven't responded so I don't think that's working

Hello Gardengirl, I have loads of the false sunflowers, it will have to be the roots again as it's been cut back now. One thing I did this year was to cut a top off the plant, stuck in some compost and it grew !

This year again it attracted loads of insects and butterflies. I'm no expert but I think it might do better in the ground than in a pot. It seems to be a spreader, I dug out loads of it last year, but you wouldn't know that now!

The white campion has flowered this year  so am leaving it to self seed hopefully, and the honesty plants are coming on great, looking forward to seeing them flower next year. Been a bit amiss with the white mallow, just planted them out.........but if they have survived this far they will be fine.
