They maybe use the seed for next year Dawn, or probably leave them, they would look great in Winter all frosted.....:o)

Lol Dawn I do, perhaps look out for people who grow them on allotments Dawn and see if they will let you have some more or seeds, allotments are very generous, you do get the odd one or two meanies.
