Is there someone there that could really have done that😱? 

Sure they just haven't dried out in that last hot dry spell we had. 

No flowers on sea holly

Rob,, If it dies, let me know, it self seeds everywhere here, I put loads in the compost bin. You're welcome to a few plants.  Once it flowers you will never be without it,  it's not really suited to a pot so try to get it in the ground as soon as you move.

These Gaura The Bride, along with  Echinops were the first flowers I ever grew from seeds.

Unfortunately   the Gaura was a bit short lived, it grew very straggly after a few years and I dug them out.. 

Can I eat these?

I have to disagree with both of you, on my ipad it's a roundish yellow thing.😀

Delphinium help needed please.

It's ok for Monty to cut his right down to the ground, he doesn't need to save seeds for next, he can go out and buy loads more, your seed may come true, some will, if you're not fussy about colours, leave a seed head stalk on until they're black. 

I'm collecting now, but mine are only blues and lilacs which always come true to colour.

Down here in Devon they are very superstitious about burning Holly, very bad luck. 

Are your autumn raspberries fruiting now and

My autumn ones have the tiny flower buds at the moment, it will be ages before they fruit. But then we are about three/four weeks behind most people's gardens. 

Planting lysmchia Seeds

I always start mine in pots for the same reason, I'd never see them again in my jungle😁

You could sow the seeds now and overwinter or as I do, start them in Spring. I seem to remember they flower in the first year. 

Where can I buy Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve' wallflower seeds?

They say 

All habits, from tiny to tall, and large and small flowers will appear, and including colour variations and bi-colours, from pale mauve to deepest purple. 

Theyre working on it😁 Worth a try?  In a couple of years they will have them. 

Maybe they are of the type that only throws a fertile seed very rarely.

i had a seed head from something else, (not wallflower) but there was only one viable seed in the whole head, the rest were sterile.
