 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!

Hi all

i have a gorgeous, but small, scarlet red dianthus plant and i would love to keep the seeds and grow lots more of these next year.  I have been saving all the flower heads after deadheading them for last few weeks but will these dead heads still ripen fully and produce the dark seeds i need for germination? At the mo the seeds are more cream coloured so not ripe Yet.

any advice on where i should store the flower heads (greenhouse or airing cupboard?),  when the seeds should be ready to extract etc... would be great

Hi PaulaH, thanks for the reply.  Looks like ive got some more research to do then, i may try to just plant some of the seeds and see if i have any luck.  I will keep as many seeds as poss and plant lots, hopefully one will take.

 Hi all

i have a gorgeous bottle brush plant that i bought and i would like to collect the seed and try to grow another bush rom the seed.  The picture i have attached shows the flower heads which have finished flowering and fallen from the bush, i am just wondering wher the actual seeds are located? I have taken a couple apart and found a fine brown powder inside, is this the seed?  Can anyone offer me any advice please?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi paulaH thanks for that, have you ever tried it on deep thick stubborn weeds? Did it work ok?  Cheers.

What is this plant please?

Hi welshonion, you could have maybe asked me for a better photo then rather than leave such a vague answer then. If you could tell me what you want me to photograph then i will do so!

daydaisy. Thanks very much for the help, the first flowers are coming through and they look to be orange, i just looked up the thunbergia and it looks very nice, i will keep it growing and hopefully it will be very pretty!
