Poppy seed head

Place the seed head in a paper bag and hang the bag somewhere dry where the seed head can mature until the seeds are rattling dry. You may be lucky.

Next year ask the kind people if you can tie a paper bag over the seed head on the plant until the seeds are ripe. Good luck.

not enough bees

We all might have more success with white flowered runner beans.

Ain't nature wonderful !!??

Why is this plant browning after a couple of days?

Some questions about Basil

Mel, maybe I'm reading your posts wrong, but why do you want your plants to bolt. Most gardeners spend their time trying to prevent their plants bolting, or going to seed.

Happy Sunflowers

They are called sunflowers because they turn to face the sun. Quite a sight, seeing acres and acres of sunflowers all facing the same way.
