Harvesting seeds

Posted: 13/07/2015 at 09:06

Wait until the pods on the plant go dark brown or black, when you give them a little shake they will rattle in the pods.

Some you can sow straight away, some its best to wait till Spring.

I sowed my Stocks in late Summer, for early Spring flowering, depends what you have.

I did that Nut, they are still there, I won't be beaten, I will try again this year.

The reason I asked was because I sent them to several people on the seed swap thread and wondered if anyone else had any luck.

I am sure it's been discussed 20 times on here I haven't the time to use the search box though, and I know you like to tell the tale I make a hole like that, no fear of a stone getting in the way. My dad always reckoned rich ground made them 'hairy'

I tried to grow the seeds from my white Aconitum but none germinated, anyone else have any luck with them?
