SEEDHEADS

I collect seedheads in dry weather, as they ripen.

The Honesty seeds above were from my Dad's garden. The way the seeds form in their own little paper bags fascinates me.



This years Lupin seeds, from plants given to me by my Uncle.



Seeds are for sharing. Remember my cerise pink Hollyhock, from an earlier post? Plants, especially annuals, seed prolifically and it's produced hundreds of seeds.

If you live in the UK and would like some, please e-mail me your name and address, or leave a comment on this post, and I shall post some off to you.

That top photo looks like what we call a Silver Dollar plant or Money plant here. I had those in my old garden and they really spread. I wonder if yours is the same thing...

So lovelyof you to want to share your seeds.

A fellow grower gave me some lupin seeds two years ago, they just keep getting bigger and bigger. It is one of those flowers, once you have, you have for life - I think.
