That's a fun looking plant
Do they really make nest boxes?
Try Tragopogon pratensis, which we used to call 'Jack go to bed at noon', it only flowers in the morning.
What I can see of the stems brings that to mind.
The swollen bits are where the potential new tree starts, shoots up, roots down. The plant id trying hard to establish but someone keeps coming round with weedkiller or a lawnmower and setting it back. Every time the top is removed the number of potential stems increases and so the swollen piece grows
Those are tree/shrub roots and my money would be on the cherry if they're sending up shoots.They're well known for it. Do the leaves look like those in Wanna be's first photo?
A photo would give us the best clue
I should go and check my own seed if yours are ripe Lesley
I've already let all the hellebores drop without collecting any
Leycesteria formosa, himalayan honeysuckle and assorted other names
seeds about a bit. Lovely flowers, bracts and berries
The top looks a bit washed out for Roma.
Where did you get it? is it likely to be ex Roma?
I doubt it's the soil
