I planted some seeds this spring and they only germinated some weeks ago!

Cool. I'll wait for them to be released and dry them indoors.

Do you just wait until they are released by the plant or do you pick them when they look like a walnut? My Empress of India is full of seeds but none looks ready exept for a couple that was lying next to the planter. Should I just wait for them to be released or pick them when they are brown?

Green manure

I got a winter mix from mr Forthergill's at my local garden centre which contains crimson and broad leaf clover, Westerwolths rye grass and white tilney mustard plus some prince claus crocuses I quite like the look of.

I thought Hungarian grazing rye was really hard to work with. Digging in and such. Better google vetches as I have no idea what that is.

What would you recommend for a small garden? I have previously used field beans and buckwheat. The seeds I have has run out so I thought I'd try something new.

Thanks for your tips. No idea why I haven't had any notifications to this thread. I'll trim off the top and feed it with some worm tea and see what happens. Never had probes with earwigs before so I'll point the finger of blame on the slugs. 

Quite surprised this plant has survived three years in the ground. Thought last years rain would have killed it off like the other one.
