The seed is ready when it has turned black and glossy and the seed pods go brown and start to open. They can then be sown straight away or the folowing spring if you store the seeds in a dry place.
Don, what did you sow?
I currently have 20 dozen touchwood double pricked out into 3 inch pots.
I will bring some to Barnsdale, they are looking for a home.
Can we see a picture of the whole plant and the leaves as well?
The "winky series" of aquilegia have upward facing flowers.
But you cant describe them as grannys bonnets.
I'm going for opium poppies
I spent yesterday dodging showers and hauling the shredder in and out. Today a friend's son is 21,so out tonight. I'd better try and get the ingrained soil out of my hands.
OK. So how about move it to Friday 20th June. Meet around midday outside the coffee shop. (inside if wet)
So now how many have we got.
Me, Dove, Nut, Chicky , Busy bee and David K.
I'm not neat. I have every intention,,,, but then the sneaky plants get away from me with their exuberance.
We had a tree surgeon in for the day to take dead and diseased wood out of our tree. Swinging around on ropes like a monkey he found diseased stuff that we couldn't see from the ground. He took photos for the tree preservation people at the council and removed diseased stuff. We were alarmed that a big branch that looked ok from the ground had a large rotting area at the top. It cost 400 quid,we got a huge pile of chippings to use as mulch, and peace of mind. There is a preservation order on our trees,but they still have to have diseased wood removed to keep them safe. They should be ok now for 20years or so.
