Foxglove seed collections

Posted: 25/06/2014 at 09:56

I doubt if they're ready. They will be dry and brown and loose in the seed cases when they're ready.

But have a look, there'll be plenty. Open one up and see what's in there.

The time to sow is when the foxgloves drop their seed. You don't need to do anything, they will self seed with abandon

You don't need to keep all your foxglove plants if they're over. Just one will do.

Briza media won't need shelter, it grows naturally in open grasslands. Why not let it seed and start some new plants. Or split it up, you could to that now. Cut it back and pull/cut it apart.

Right, I'll have a look at that bekkie. Thank you.

Floralies for years the bats went in under the barge boards on one of the gable ends of the house. From there they could access the whole roof space. It seemed a good choice, don't know why they moved. Better for us as well as it wasn't over windows and we all know what's up walls and windows under the entrance to a bats roost

It takes a long tome to upload, especially if it's a big file. Try reducing the size.

I cut what my camera produces to 30% of the original and that goes on nicely. I'm not a techie and realise that does tell you much

That's all dead Gareth but doesn't give any clue about why.

Are there any parts going down at the moment or that are showing signs of going.?

The Bowles Mauve I know isn't a geranium. Is this the Erysimum Bowles Mauve

They are flowering now, the sticky out bits are the 'working parts' with pollen

The yellow/red ones are pretty much apart from the rest Andy and my friend only wants some red yellow, nothing too precise so they'll be fine

Otherwise yes, a promiscuous lot.
