    These are the seeds, my wife asked why I had a handful of our labrador's nail clippings.Flower Seed Circle 2019 - Finished Parcel-seeds1.jpg

    This is what the young seedling looked like a few years back, bet you wish you'd joined the circle now

    And the final plant, pretty but can be a bit straggly/floppy so maybe needs support from staking or nearby plants. 2ft high, similar spread, flowers early-mid summer, sometimes used for cut-flowers

    Chilean glory vine
    Smallish seeds - finishing drying indoors to avoid the monsoon.
    Seems to be a range of colours, I have an orange/red one at home and a pink one on the allotment, I'll try to mix the two. Self clinging delicate ferny foliage, about 6ft high, flowers mid-late summer. Not very prolific this year but I think would prefer hotter and sunnier than we've had, having said that it's still flowering. I have mine growing through lonicera, picture taken today.

    Not much to look at but wonderfully scented.

    These are my eryngiums

    I'm not sure which species / variety they are - amethystinum? Planum? Leaves form a low clump of slightly variegated foliage and flower stems are about 2 feet plus, and very spiky.
