Storing Seeds Over Winter

It was an odd season. After June we didn't have much of a summer here. I waited and waited for some seeds to ripen, it took ages .

They don't have a long life. You might keep it alive for a bit longer but it won't become more beautiful.

Storing Seeds Over Winter

2 or 3 weeks after the petals have gone will not have produced mature seeds. I think they're soft because they aren't ripe.

Seeds need to mature on the plant all seeds not just sunflowers. Drying off is done when the seeds are mature. Maturity is when pods open or seeds come loose in the seed head. 

Is this a poisonous plant?

Leycesteria formosa. No idea re poisonous but black seeds are not a sign of poisonous. Otherwise where would we be with Blackcurrants and Blueberries

To Fell Or Not To Fell

75mm girth is tiny, if that were a rule we wouldn't be able to cut anything back.

I doubt if there are rules preventing the removal of leylandii.

Can you identify this grass please?

I think that's Melica altissima 'Atropurpurea'

sounds right

If plant that needs warm and wet is planted next to one that need cool and dry,  they will not both be suited
