I'm going to try and get the rest of the bulbs in today before winter sets in tomorrow.

OH filling the wood shed this week, then we'll be ready

I agree. I can't see it either looking good or surviving long in that situation

David, that's almost as worrying as the amount of time spent in front of a TV

where are the seeds?

Clematis, yes waterbutts, Bill Mackenzie is looking splendid.

Interesting about the peas and beans. One or two leguminous plants that I thought had shed when I wasn't looking may not have set seed

I do have seeds, but there are a lot of absentees

Thanks fidgetbones

I had lots of insects around but maybe the wrong ones. Fennel  hasn't made seeds here either. Bupleurum falcatum, nothing, 2 forum seed swappers were hoping for some of that. That's a real hoverfly favourite and although we had some they weren't in the usual numbers

I've never known such a year for flowers not maturing to seeds. I poke about in a brown head and it's a soggy mess, no seeds. Various umbellifers have just stopped, look like immature seeds and have done for weeks, then they drop off.

I thought the later summer weather was good for ripening off seed.  Anyone else suffering this?

I'd sow thalictrum in pots now. Most, if not all, Ranunculaceae like to be sown fresh now. No heat required, you can leave them outside, grit on top, germinate in spring.

They'd probably be OK straight into ground, but I find pots of seedlings easier to manage than seedlings amongst weeds in the garden
