Foxglove

If it were me I would let the seeds develop on the stems and depending on your style you could just wave the stem about where you would like them to grow or use a paper bag and put the stem upside down and collect them that way.

I do think it's possible to cut the stems off and then collect the seed, but I'm short on space and you have to keep them in damp free conditions

What are these

Hello everyone,

Picked these up yesterday for a £1 each, I think the orange flowered is a verbascum of some sort  but not sure. No idea about the purple ones, but the bees seem to like it


 


 Thanks for any information

On the thread you want, you will see a green arrow and the name of the person who last posted on it. click there it will take you the end or near to it, sometimes you will see a "go to first unread post link " as well. Hope that makes sense

I think wallflowers are one of easiest plants to grow from seed, I always grow them. Had good results from forget me nots as well. Sweet rockets seem to do well for me,  honesty and sweet williams.

Forgot about foxgloves as well

Hello, I don't do any direct sowing either. Your plan sounds spot on, that's what I do. I generally sow into trays and then pot on into bigger pots as the plant grows

Thanks KEF will pick off the smaller first courgette. I've been feeding them with tomato feed.

Thanks also for the advice re watering. They have generally been watered at the base of the plant but we have been spraying them with the hose so I'm guessing that may explain why there are white marks on some of the leaves.
