It is very important to "see" these things. It frees the mind.

Most visitors arrive with the idea: "what must be done to make it grow well?"

And leave, I hope, convinced that the good question is: "What must not be done especially so that it grows better?".

I generally remind you that a plant, even when cultivated, has only one "desire": to grow and reproduce!

That's what we actually see ....

I forgot to mention that they were 3 spontaneous.

The campanulas that does not surprise me at all.

The kind of poppy a little more to the extent that I have never seen in the corner and of course we did not sow either.
But good as we have a lot of poppies we say that it's not weird

For the amaranth it is more curious on the other hand ...
Never seen in my life here or anywhere else
It seems like it was a common plant in vegetable gardens before.

We'll see if that's fine in the end
If she makes her seeds
That we can resemer ...

There is not a ton of info on the net on this thing

poppies rose in the compacted earth by the inflatable pool last summer, I was happy I love this flower, and yet the first visible poppies are hundreds of meters from home,
Another remark with the late mowing, I observe the return of the poppies on the roadsides, there on the banks of the river from below my house, it was all white of little wild daisies, it was just missing the poppies , I hope for next year, (they redo the banks entirely last year)

Just remember that when you buy a bag of seeds, it's ridiculous to do what nature can do.

The poppy is a little different, there are everywhere, we also had not last year and we have this year but there are in the valley at 100m from the house at the edge of the road.

On it no worries it's normal.

But this VARIETY ... that seems to be from the same family (but NOT a poppy) is a bit more surprising.

We will try to save it in the parking lot for the fiesta of the 14 July Image

We will try to recover the seeds.

And .... to follow

Image We did some research in the photos of last year and everything is explained ....

For the poppy we stop looking we had last year in the garden, probably flower meadow which explains why we had not kept the memory.

Ditto for the amaranth we had in pots ....

What surprises in the end are the rather hostile places in which the seeds dispersed by X have sprouted.

I see, in the background, a hammock in the middle of the deckchairs! A sub-variant of the technology implemented in the Lazy Potager!

No more time to take pictures ... but it'll come back : Mrgreen:

Following my harvest of seeds of columbines I tell myself that I must not delay too much to sow them since in the nature it is already some time that they fell to the ground ...

Which means that they spring up spontaneously roughly in June .... as mentioned in the text below ...

I wonder when I read this kind of advice

As for sowing, it should be done in the spring of March. Ancolies having a great facility to hybridize among them, this multiplication method will be more random and you will not be sure to obtain a seedling identical to the mother plant. To sow Ancolies, you just have to harvest the seeds directly from your mother plants in June when they have reached maturity. Then store them in small pouches that will be placed in the vegetable bin of your 3 refrigerator weeks before being sown. This thermal shock will more easily cause germination.

I must have a calendar problem ... Image

Columbine makes its seeds in June.
They are spontaneously resurrected at this period
We keep them 3 weeks in the fridge
And we sow them in big end ... July so

But then why to specify at the beginning that the sowing must be done in March Image

Well I will respect the natural rhythm and sow them now (even if I am a little late) and we will see next year what it will give.

Quite similarly planted delphiniums have already lost some (but not all) of their seeds that have fallen to the ground: there too, see you next year if all goes well.

I understand the advice like this: collect the seeds in June and keep them until February next year, then put them 3 weeks in the fridge before sowing in March (for vernalization).
