Where are the seeds located on a poached egg plant?

Posted: 30/07/2013 at 15:28

Hi all

I was just looking at my potted poached egg plants flowers and they all seem to be dying off a little, losing their flowers.  I would like to collect some seeds to plant and grow next year but i am unsure where the seeds are, are they the petals? Or are they the 4 small ball things that are left in the flower head once the petals have dropped? Or... Are they actually inside these 4 ball thingies? Any help would be great thanks!

 Hi all, I am growing Katsura Trees, as you can see in the picture the seedlings are just coming through but I am confused as to why there are leafy seedlings and grass-like seedlings, which are the correct Katsura seedlings please? I am guessing its the grassy ones as these are coming through more but i am slightly confused, can anyone advise please? 

Can i grow new poached egg plants next year from these seeds??

Hi there all, i made a mistake and got 2 of my plants mixed up, these seeds are actually from a Tidy Tips, these grow pretty easily so I reckon these seeds will grow fine next year, and that probably explains why there is a bit of yellow left on them.

 

What are these growing at the base of my fern please??

Ahh amateur mistake on my part, i will throw the new plants/weeds straight out and repot the fern, removing the other plants from the base.

thanks very much for the tips guys, love this forum, so helpful.

Thanks ChrissieB i will certainly try and plant some in Autumn, see what happens. Do you have any tips for drying the seeds? Do I Just leave on windowsill or in greenhouse for a week or 2? 

And Nutcutlet, the seeds were just about to drop from the heads, some had already half dropped, so i guess they probably just need drying out. I do have another couple of poached egg plants that are still in full bloom, i will try and leave these to the very last minute before harvesting seeds but they seem to fall quite soon after flower dies.

thanks for taking the time to reply chaps!

 Hi all

please see the above pics of my fern, I am not sure of the variety but I believe it is Ostrich \ shuttlecock type.  There are lots of shoots at the base of the fern, some of which i have potted up seperately as pictured, i am just wondering if these will grow into ferns themselves? I would love it if they did as i would like another half dozen ferns for the garden.

Many thanks in advance if you can offer any advice!

 I collected these this morning from some dead poached egg flowers. Just before they dropped off themselves.  Does anyone know if i keep these whether i can grow from them next spring?  Also do i need to dry them out for a bit? If so can i get some advice on drying them and how best to store them.

many thanks in advance for any help!
