Raspberry fool, I have Onopordum seeds. PM your address and I will send you some. The kindle kept describing it as scotch gristle, I can't cope with predictive stuff.

Nut, your acanthus is happy in its big pots. It tried to flower but I beheaded it, so it should be good and strong for next year.

The roscoea is splitting in its pods, so I guess its ready. I took off all that had split today and planted the seed, but there is plenty more to come.

 I will also have a lot of Thalictrum flavum seed. 6 feet tall. yellow flower heads.

I slow watering down as the tomatoes start ripening. Don't let them dry out but they don't need as much water now.

They're just pollen beetles. The won't harm you or the plant.
