It’s an excellent time to collect seed now, while the weather is dry, I was given these beautiful columbines from ‘Bobs Flowers’ near Craven arms. Bob Lewis, a friend and knowledgable nurseryman, collected the seed himself the year before. He noticed a particularly spectacular plant among his collection.
Lots of plants are easily propagated from collected seed and you all ways have the chance of finding new hybrid in your collection.
