I'm not really sure nut, when I saw it it had purple flowers. I've looked online it looked like the common one I think. Can't really remember any more than that. The seeds were very round, dark and smooth.

Think my poor harvest is probably due a few factors, although the beans I have had were very tasty and there is some in the freezer. Fingers crossed will get some more.

I saw this on a roadside earlier this year and very pleased that I have a few germinations from the seeds. I've got in mind some wild flower scruffy corners for next year so thought it would fit in well.

As it's such a spindly plant I don't really know what to do with it. Will the individual plants bush out on their own or is best to plant small clumps of it? It's in long 2inch seed trays at the moment

Any info appreciated

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
