Verdun, just saw your reply to the query re Epsom salts for runner beans. May I pick your brain too pls?

Hi Verdun, could you tell me where would you buy Epsom salts, how expensive, can you get it in the usual supermarkets? OH is going to England next week and I would like him to bring some back for me.

Thanks for your answer on here or Evening Forkers, will check out both!

It's a Euphorbia. They do seed themselves, but are easily pulled out where not wanted.

Best way to get rid is to rub them off by hand.

Where do i find the seeds? some of the flowers have started falling off now.

Crocus suggest the following procedure:

Saving seed

Cover the flowerspikes with paper bags (such as the those used by bakers to wrap baggettes) to collect the seeds. When the seedheads have dried, shake them to remove the seed and scatter them where you want them to grow. Seeds for other varieties can be sown from early spring to late summer in a coldframe or directly outside in prepared soil. Self-sown seedlings that occur in other parts of the garden are best transplanted when the leaves are about 10cm long. Make sure the newly moved plants are watered very well to help them establish because they have very fine roots which can be damaged easily.
