I'm pretty sure your garden isn't big enough for this many akebias or this many gladioli.
How many would you like? Would anybody else like some? Are we still sending freebies to Somerset? It's not as if I have a use for them or it would cost more to send them all, but ... that's a lot of seeds.
Having given it some thought, that's only a few square metres of gladioli. That would probably look wonderful. It's still a lot of akebia seed, but I don't know what sort of germination rate they'll get. It looks like a tomato-style fruit to me, meaning it probably evolved to take advantage of hungry gibbons not bothering to chew, and may have a lower germination rate if it hasn't been subjected to certain biological processes.
