If it's been cut back it won't have flowered and fruited. I'm not convinced though.

Definitely fresh and leave it outside. If  they don't go dormant they germinate in no time at all and the plants are big enough to survive winter.

If they have gone dormant sow them in January in a cold GH or outside and wait. They will germinate. Took 3 or 4 months this year, they were waiting for spring. I put grit on top especially if they're outside, stops the rain washing them away.

I'll save you some seed from the Nora barlow shaped ones fb. Not sure that any of mine are totally NB but they are the right shape

No, Nut. I've moved it once, and split it to give some to my mum (backup plants)

 It dies down each year to small tubers a bit like dahlias. The main problem is that is doesn't start to grow until may, so early weeding results in a fork being put through it.

 This is a cluster of about 6 plants.  I will probably split the larger clump up again this autumn.  I seem to have lost the purple version.


I'd always assumed it wasn't very hardy as it looks so exotic. Late appearance is always risky. Arisaemas disappear, whether they die or come out with the weeds I don't know.

Some one else probably will know and I'll think about it. It's not something I grow but have seen it around. 

Poppies in a tin hat

They're annuals so you don't want to germinate them this year unless it's a practice run. Poppy seeds hang around for years and can germinate when soil is disturbed (as in battlefields)

Some of the best are sown and germinate in late summer, overwinter where they are and flower the next year

I recognise this. Pity I can't remember what it's called

 They do get about. I think this one has some genes from A. viridiflora
