Sowing seeds

Some of the plants we’ve introduced to the garden have been very successful and others have been dismal failures.

Those that seed well, we like to spread a bit further and introduce to other areas.

In order to do this, we gather the dead flower stems, while the majority of the seeds are still in their various pods or capsules, and distribute them over these virgin territories.

Dead flower stems in a new area

What you can see in the photo is dried stems of love-in-a-mist (above all), sweet pea and poppy, laid along an otherwise fairly flowerless bank.

I hope they take there; it will make for a very pretty display if so!
