The seeds have been developing for a while so i'm hoping they will dry soon for me to get sowing.

I removed all but 1 today and got my Fuchsias and other random stuff put in

Agree with Perki, the flowers don't last forever 

Regular deadheading helps promote new flowers and keeps the plant looking tidy

Im not too fussy on colour, I just love the smell and the bees love them too.


Do they generally come true from seed or will it be a surprise?

I guess so. I wanted to put some fuchsias in :P

Maybe I will just leave 1 Plant in to collect seed from.

This may sound stupid but can I collect seed from Wallflowers while the pods are green?

I want to get sowing my Wallflowers as I feel its getting late and I dont know if the seeds are ripe enough for sowing.

I do believe that is Jasmine. No idea which kind though.

Probably Trachelospermum Jasminoides

Have to admit it looks like my Gertrude Jekyll too. How high is it currently and roughly how many flower buds per stem?
