Hardy Geranium?

I think it's a geranium Fishy. I wondered if maybe it was creeping buttercup but the leaves are different

If they are brown, dry and come away easy from the seed head they are ready. You can either save them or sow them. They germinate easily from seed and will flower next year

Isn't that the way pansyface? Some years things grow well,other years not. Runners haven't done well for me but I have stacks of Rudebekias

I'm a little envious of both your good harvest, I do love runners. I have a couple of meals worth off the plants and frozen some but they are very thin on/off the ground. This time last year I had bags of them

Although it feels like Autumn hopefully I'll get a few more. I won't get them so early next year and will grow from seed.

 

Moonlight runner beans

Well not a good runner year for me. Might not be the just the Moonlight. I bought them as plants early in the season so they were in pots for ages before they got planted out. Very few beans and lots of black fly

I'd only been in the house for a few months so didn't really prepare the ground. Just chucked some feed on every now and again. Will grow them in a different space next year and might try another type

How's everyone's else been?

overgrown beds

Hi Amy, your plants look really healthy and great Lupins. A lot of plants in there can quickly out grow their space. Things just look a little cramped to me.

Have you thought about widening the beds at all?

The bowles mauve in the last photo would respond well to a trim, it will keep sending up new flowers. Dead heading is also a good way of keeping the flowers
