Right, sow them, well drained compost, top with grit, shady place outside now. Outside or cold GH/coldframe for winter. No heat at any time, germinate in spring.

Good luck

I doubt if they're ripe yet. Are they brown and dry?

If they are, sow them fresh and leave them cold through the winter. I've always left tree  seeds outside but some people use a cold frame so they don't get too wet.

Hi Topbird, we've previously swapped mobile numbers. It helps with meeting up.

I'll PM you with mine later on. I'd do it now but I'd have to get up and find the number

Identification Problems

Hi Graham, I would describe the lychnis as a short-lived perennial. But the best flowers for me come from the younger plants that have self seeded.

The curry plants is a shrubby helichrysum which can be hard pruned in spring

I've just had coffee on the lawn. Present are; white clover, dandelion, one of the knapweeds, agrimony, ragwort, black medick, self-heal, daisy, cat's ear, one of the speedwells, dog daisy, teasel, yellow bedstraw and mint. All waiting for their chance to flower and seed.

The clover, self-heal and a few daisies are flowering 5 days after a mow.

Lovely

dogwoods

I think they are spindly. They're a great colour in winter but they're not very  lovely the rest of the year

Plant suggestion please

Some of the thymes root as they go. You might find a rooted piece.

And sempervivums, house leeks (as opposed to house leaks)

HELLO FORKERS!

I zapped them last night. 

Butterflies big time here now. and the dragonflies and damsels and hoverflies. I shall look at them instead of the sowthistles and bindweed

I wonder if that's why a lot of us don't use these poisons Maggie
