What's left for us to grow?

Red kidney beans are very toxic, only use tinned ones in slow cookers as they dont get hot enough to kill the toxin, under cooked are worse than raw!

seeds or pelleted seeds

I always just save the seeds from the previous year but they are very tiny, as fidget says depends on what you want, you do need heat for them to germinate, I put them on the kitchen windowsill, they are very tiny seeds so if you don't want many plants pelleted would be good, they are more expensive though.

I have found them in Heucheras, Fuchsias, begonias, just tipped out the fuchsias to save for next year, always repot them as there is usually some in there. I put them all in a pot and put them out for the birds.

You may find that when they do come into flower that you wont want them again, all my family think they absolutely pong, we all had to put them out in the garden, couldn't stand the smell!

You may like them, some do.

They won't grow indoors again, they may grow if you put them outside in the garden, but not always.

Just read that Clematis and Delphiniums are toxic as well, mind you, perhaps they all account for how I am, just a bit pickled!

I have never worn gloves to prune a clematis, or the Aconitum,

Thats why I wont put anything to do with tomatoes or potatoes in my comost bins. They spring up all over the place, dig it out and chuck it.

To late to plant foxgloves?

I agree with Verdun, will plant mine out in Spring, bigger plants under shelter through the winter and you can keep an eye on the slugs.
