Still powering on - #latebloomer . Does anyone know if these self seed? I haven't seen a single seed pod 😕 and I really would like it again next year.

Thanks Joan - I'll have to see if I can buy some. Not entirely sure if this is the right variety as it was a surprise seedling that appeared.

Not bad considering it was probably some dormant seed buried in my newly turned over Lily and Dahlia bed. Hasn't been dug over in many years!

This has interesting popped up in Lily bed. I recently weeded it and this started off as a very different type of seedling, so i left it to grow and now it's about to flower. Definitely from stray seed i think. Anyone have any clue? (Flower pic to follow in a couple of days i think)

Actually, looking at it for longer tonight i think i've convinced myself its Nicotiana. I guess i'll know in a few days.
