great photo's, & nice to see the fatsia's popping up. Fairygirl I've never seen mine flower dont know if it will. I'm not sure what variety mine is, I do like to give mine about a litre of T a week this time of year. Does anyone else do that?

Nutcutlet I'm North West so the weather is rubbish, it is sheltered with the shed and fence.

also the monarda is Bergamot Bee Balm.

unlucky james, dont know what the police with do as supermarket car parks are normally private land, unless you get a decent person who gives details there is not much anyone can do. 

Harvesting Seeds

Posted: 28/07/2013 at 06:41

I tried collecting seeds from a snake's head fritillary a couple of months ago. I let the seed pods swell on the plant then chopped & tried to open and collect the seeds. I got in such a mess I've ended up with zero seeds. I'm going to try again with the foxglove this week see how i get on with that.

I dont find seeds to expensive for the volume you get to what you would have to pay for one plant. I'm always picking up a packet of something and putting them away in my seed tin.

Unsucessful cucumbers

maybe next time you could try pollinating by hand just to be sure.

I agree with nutcutlet spaying things ruins the natural balance of the garden.

Hello not sure what variety my monarda is, but reading nutcutlet's post reminded me I too have a bad of label's in the shed i will have a rummage through tomorrow and see if i can find it.

Fairygirl the fatsia is turning into a guilty pleasure of mine, even though it offer's nothing for the pollinating insects  it seem's to be doing well in my shady spot, I have seen the squirral coming and going hiding his nuts under it. I also think that squirral had it away on his toe's with some of my bulbs.

Can you identify this shrub for me.

Is It Bay or Laural related?
