Right... I hope I'm not the only one who can't resist collecting seeds whilst on holidays in south. I'm fully aware of the risks of potentially introducing a new Japanese Knotweed into North Tyneside ecosystem so always swear to keep my seedlings as houseplants. And then there are the pests, viruses and diseases to consider. And yet again, we just returned from Portugal with a plump seedpod of this , it was such a lovely twining climber with carnivorous looking blooms, some prickly pear seeds from a ripe, stolen fruit eaten by my daughter and a legume- type seedpod from an unknown tree. I'll soak and sow them all tomorrow Do you collect seeds or cuttings on holidays? Any thoughts on the risks, any success stories or cautionary tales?
