Wot! No seeds?

Most years the first Canna seed are harvested mid-July, so it comes as a shock to realise that we are now almost at the end of August and the summer, and we have not yet had any seed ready to collect!

We still have many plants that have not yet flowered, but they are not naturally late flowering.

The only conclusion is, that once again, the non-seasonal rain patterns and cloudy conditions have not supplied the Cannas with the energy they need to grow their flowers and subsequent seeds.

We are hoping for a bit of an Indian summer to give us some pleasure from all the hard work involved in growing the Collection, but we have little faith that will happen.
