What is this plant?

Posted: 30/06/2015 at 14:27

One of the peas. Probably the one known as everlasting pea, Lathyrus latifolius. I'd grow it from seed, thought it does spread a bit at the root and it might be worth seeing if you can get a bit of root off, I'd do that before growth started next year.

I'd be leaving the best to seed and removing the rest (if I got round to it)

That's Chaenomeles, as opposed to Cydonia oblonga, both known as quince

What is this plant and what do I do now the stems are falling over?

You can cut them right back if you like, they'll make new leaves and flower again next year. Or you could leave one to set seed if you want more. 

It's an aquilegia

Those flies are probably aphids and can be brushed off or hosed off with water. No damage to plant or bees or butterflies or anything else including you

Hi Tetley

I can't see the flower clearly but try Tragopogon porrifolius, salsify

When to harvest seeds

Posted: 30/06/2015 at 10:29

Let them ripen totally (go brown) in the plant then you can pick them off and remove them from the pods. Let them dry completely. Store cool in paper bags/envelopes. Never polythene, they sweat and go rotten.
