I was out in the garden today having a look at some of the plants i,m growing and looking to see what seeds I can collect, I love wildflowers so i,m keeping an eye on these especially.
These blue cornflower (Centaurea Cyanus) are almost ready to drop so watching them closely.

another seed pod,
This one is a mauve corncockle (Agrostemma Githago), almost ready too.

Here is another blue wildflower pod, this one is Flax ( Linum Usitatissimum)

so it,s looking good for seeds so far.
My Rain water cuttings are doing not bad, some that are showing roots are tom thumb fuchsia, Salvia, Osteospermum, Gypsophila,and argyranthemums red and yellow and others.

this fuchia that i just sat in a wee container of rainwater is even growing roots too.

No wonder they're doing well Usernut, if you put them in beer and it looks like they've drunk half of it already!!!!!
Lots of wildflowers next year judging by all the seeds you're going to collect! I had a samall widflower/hardy annual bed this year and it was great but a bit wind damaged and straggly now!

LOL, that bottle was well drained first... in my slug beer traps. I told the wife I need some more as the slugs may come back ;-)
