I like to grow summer flowering bulbs in pots and have a collection of such pots in one particular area of our garden, all pots being topped off with grit. 3 years ago what I assume is a self sown orchid became established in one of these pots, it appears to be a pyramidal orchid which currently grow in a meadow 200 metres away from our garden. Since then a further five plants have appeared in adjacent pots, I assume self sown from the original plant, four of these 6 flowering this year.Seed pods are developing on these plants and I would like to try to produce plants from the seeds myself rather than rely on self sown plants appearing as and when and where. Can anyone provide advice as how best to sow the seed please.
