I managed to get a seed pot last year of one of my brugs....no idea what it has been crossed with (I had 8 flowering last year). So happy when all the seeds germinated!! 😃😃

My brugs have never produced a seed pod. What am I doing wrong?

Great job @drnicko - will be exciting to see what flower colour it produces. 👍🏼

@sara2309 you have to manually pollinate them ideally, which I did do, just forgot to close the flowers after and keep a record. Did it thinking it wouldn't work!! Don't think there's any natural pollinators in UK that would get you seed pods. 😃

@richard.spicer.7906 it will be exciting to see what they produce. I may be sitting on next big brug cultivar!! Only problem is I may not be able to go out to my garden when they all grow up.......I've got too many plants now!! 😃😃
