The seeds are inside the spines, down at the bottom (if they're still there), if the heads were ripe when you picked them they will have dropped some to germinate by themselves.

If you put the whole head in a bird feeder the birds may not be able to get into the seeds. I like to leave them on the plant and watch the goldfinches take them

I think it depends on your gardening style and your soil

Not one to set loose with the alpines but a lovely in the right company. I have some that flowers with a white hemerocallis when they get the timing right. If it exceeds its bounds it goes into cut grass and gets beheaded like all the other extras.

I've got some in long grass as well.

The only good poison I haven't got is deadly nightshade.

I'd say you'd be letting yourself in for a lot of watering, feeding and inablity to go on holiday. 

A couple of IDs please.

I think it might be H. androsaemum but, as you say Berghill, definitely a hypericum

Check through various other threads on this subject before panicking. After all you've had them years.

Half the garden is poisonous but the plants don't jump up and attack you (except brambles)

 

 

Sand/Grit

if you handle them, you'll find the builder sand has a much softer feel to it than the concrete (sharp) sand
