seed share

I think you mean the Euphorbia griffithii  fireglow, diddy. I just dug a load out. I never get seed off this. You can have a chunk of root when it dies down. It does tend to spread though. The leaves turn red in Autumn.

Bug id please.

There are two schools of thought , Lulu. You can sow now in trays, and they may germinate soon or in the spring. Or you can sow in the ground where you want them to be. If you have lots of seed you could try both methods.

I have Nigella papillosa (big seed heads) if anyone wants to to save seed.

 Also an unnamed salvia? , that is bone hardy perennial, rosettes of hairy leaves, spikes of whorls of lavender blue flowers that the bees love. will flower from june to september with deadheading. Originally grown from RHS seed but I lost the label.

I have had one for 20 years. It gets big but not invasive. Easily cut down like a buddleja to keep in check if need be.

when to plant?

Magnolia Grandiflora are huge trees. It may be that it will flower, but it is most likely that  you might have to look at the option of clearing it and putting something different in the space.
