    Normally if I can't eat it I'm not interested in growing it but my alien plant is just blooming and I have half a doz babies I started off from saved seed from last years flower heads. I did find out it's real name but I can't remember what it's called.

    If people want seed from this years blooms I will be happy to save them and contribute them to the circle.

    Is it Agapanthus?

    Wow, that's an impressive show of agapanthus.

    My local garden centre sells them for around 10 per single plant/flower, so the amount you've grown from seed would've cost a fortune to buy as plants!

    The seed heads grow with each year so Christ knows why they are so expensive, if vines would like them I'm happy to save seeds at the end of the year and contribute to the circle. I will take another photo in a couple of week when she is in full bloom.

    I was thinking of trying to gorilla plant some on the edge of waste land on the allotment for the bees.
