More September flowers

I’ve recently been collecting seeds from some of the annual flowers to dry then sort at home.  I do this every year and find it worthwhile doing.

They include the pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites like these orange and yellow ones.

   

 

I’ll be doing the same with these lovely white cosmos Purity once they’ve finished flowering.

 

 

 

 

 

One annual that I don’t collect seed from are the poached egg plants that flower in the spring.  I leave them to self-seed and die back then clear away.  By this time of year the new plants are appearing but what I don’t expect to see are them flowering!

Have a good week!

    It’s always a bonus to have unexpected flowers.

    The Purity cosmos are lovely. A friend’s rhododendron is in almost full flower! Very strange.

    Have you collected seed from cosmos and grown again before? How did you get on? I’ve a good Rubenza plant I would mind more of next year.

    It is is a pleasant surprise to see plants flowering at the ‘wrong’ time. It’s what it indicates about our weather and what might occur the next season when it comes, I am curious about. xx

    It’s always good to get free seed! That is one confused poached egg plant!xxxx

    Yes, it’s time to collect seed, it is so satisfying getting plants for free.

    Goodness, I’ve even missed your September flowers! It’s been too long since a proper visit with you and the plot.
