 It would be different if the garden was huge I expect.

I have a list and a photographic record. I don't think labels would enhance the appearance of my garden.

Noob Q about growing from seed

Posted: Yesterday at 20:36

I wouldn't plant either of those this year. I'd grow them on and plant them out in spring.

Dying plants: which comes first - fungus or plant death?

Posted: Yesterday at 18:43

it doesn't look like HF to me and I doubt is persicaria suffers. I would look to the waterlogging and deal with that. If it can't be dealt with, plant something that can cope.

Fungal spores are everywhere and are part of the breaking down of dead plants. Without them we'd be in trouble

Seeding from established (I think) allium

 the seeds need to ripen to black and the pods go papery and open up before you pick them. Seeds must mature on the plant before they're dried off. Picked green they will never ripen.

It sounds a bit early, many agapanthus are still in flower.

If there are any still on the plant, let them ripen.

Dead-heading and seed collection don't go together.

were the agapanthus seeds black? If not, they're not ripe. If they are black, take them out of the paper bag and sow them. Fresh seed germinates best and agapanthus  do best like that. They don't need heat but I bring mine into an unheated GH or cold frame over winter. Outside for now. They probably won't germinate til spring.

Same for the alliums but they don't need any protection.
