Must be a good year Jimmy, mine are still green but lots of them. Mahonia aquifolium is still in flower

I think they're all dark coloured when ripe. I'd wait until they start dropping then grab a few. Sow them, don't store them

Pre-soaking Seeds?

I scarify and soak the hard legumes but no other hardy perennials. I have a pretty good success rate but I don't do exotics.

Saw my first white today and a small tortoiseshell. No orange tips yet. They usually turn up about now.

Mine are back. Lots of pips, no evidence of the long eared yet.

All they need to do now is get into the right bit of roof so they don't fry the babies on the first hot day

Watering Plants outdoors

In the garden I only water what has been planted in the current season. I wouldn't expect anything established to need watering for ages yet.

I choose plants that grow in my soil and climate though, I would expect to water more if I planted moisture lovers.

Pots seem to need attention most days through the summer

Help to identify plant plz

If we knew what the blue/purple flowers in front were, we could assess how big this is.
