Collecting the First Seeds

Campsis radicans, the Trumpet vine, finally splits open. Some of the last year's capsules fell down on the ground, and have collected the seeds. I don't really need it, but a friend of mine would like to try growing the Trumpet vine from seed. 

The early blooming Allium schoenoprasum, Chives, has already brought the seeds. I am planning the new herb garden and will sow it right on the site. 

Nigella, Love-in-a-Mist is not yet ripe for the picking, but I keep a close watch on it. This one has pale pink flowers instead of usual blue. It is also a good self-seeder so, I will let few capsules to spread the seeds naturally.

Levisticum officinalis, Lovage being a bold and bushy plant, sprouted the umbrella-like flower the sky high. It is over two meters high this year! The last year, the seeds I collected from this plant, travelled literally all over the world. Happy to share it.
