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

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.

Bats rarely bump into anything do they. Echolocation must be better than eyes.

I think they're checking you out when they come close, I love it when they brush by me.

In the bedroom anyway

We have bats in numbers we haven't seen for years

I think they've all gone from the bedroom now

Goodnight

What on earth???!!?

They look as though they've formed seed pods in spite of whatebver you sprayed them with. Aphids can be brushed of hosed off with far less damage to plant and biodiversity
