the nest is outside an upstairs window, the only place he always tries to get too close is a huge clump of geraniums, I did put an obstacle there today and spent time encouraging him to say hello and stand back, he's fairly quick on the uptake, ( but also rather single minded!)

just checked site says they can be harvested around 13 weeks from planting when foliage turns yellow and dies back, thought they looked a bit ropey today, although obviously I'far too disorganised to have noted exactly when we planted them!

hi all, i had some lovely wallflowers this year my friend grew for me, I just noticed they have loads of seedheads and wondered if I could collect and sow this, and how best to go about it, also they have lots of foliage now, I presume I should just lift them as they won't flower again, am I right? thanks in advance

we would't do that, i don't think it's just these in the garden, i adore flowers and front and back are very full so i presume they come from all over! I'm not bothered about the nest, just worried littlies may get stung and I don't want them put off
