Are you going to save your own seed, OL?

Not sure of the time scale, so many variables, such as weather involved. However, if you do intend to save your seed (not recommended) wait until the seed pods turn crispy brown, extract the seed, put the seed in a paper bag (not plastic) then keep in a cool place until needed.

PS. I keep mine from the suppliers in an airtight tin in a outhouse.

Thanks, Frank...and all the more poignant for being penned by someone who has been there.

Take care.

It does take quite a while to upload though - it's not instant.

 

I think this is your answer, Philip.....I have 50Mbps fibre optic broadband and still it can take a while. I find it more convenient way is to store my pics in something like Photobucket, then transfer them directly.

Fairygirl, you are very kind & considerate, but the fact is I really didn't do anything.

Dad had returned from the war 20 years or so before I was born and never motioned his wartime experiences except to explain that the scars on his body were the result of being shot & being taken POW...as children we were left in no doubt about asking too many questions.
