I get them too but mostly if they dry out. Not that bothered with them as it doesn't seem to harm the plant too much.
I planted some seeds this spring and they only germinated some weeks ago!
Seem to have posted this twice.
Cool. I'll wait for them to be released and dry them indoors.
These two flowers entwined in a deadly embrace!

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?
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.
