Hello , please could you tell what this plant is called , the seed pods are Green before going Black , also can l dry and grow plant from the seed pod. ??



Fatsia japonica.
Never tried growing it from seed, but there is no reason to suppose it cannot be done. I would sow some of the seed fresh and save some for sowing. I have a feeling that they need to be fresh to get germination though.

I agree. Fatsia Japonica. Adds some nice structure to the garden. Cut back dead leaves in spring.
