I might look for one of those, the unvariegated ones go well here.

Maybe for the rather precipitous bank I've been hacking around on this morning

I think that's Lonicera pileata. Maybe 'Silver Lining'

It's about when the seeds are ripe, not the month.

For hellebores it's April or May. Some plants haven't finished flowering yet so it will be at least October or maybe November.

Some seeds are best sown fresh, others (agastache included) are best kept dry and cool til spring.

 

should i just give up or buy a new fork!?

Carboot or Sunday market cotty.

All my best tools are either family heirlooms or second (3rd, 4th?) hand

I use an ice cream tub, hold it underneath, tip the plant over and tap it. If the seeds are ripe they drop out. Make sure they're completely dry and store them in paper packets.

Mine's in flower as well. Some good scents around at the moment with that and Eleagnus ebingeii and the usual late flowering from the choisya

Can you identify this for me please?

Sugar beet doesn't grow like that whatever colour it is

They look like mini spuds to me
