indigo seeds




A little light finally, courtesy of some very wintry weather we're having here. This is Japanese indigo, moved inside before the first frosts. I've been coaxing it along, hoping for a few seeds to grow this year. More snow first though. Spring feels a long way off.

Lovely wintry things here and here.

  1. Glad it manages to grow despite the great cold (I know, you've brought it inside) I hope everything's fine with you, Claire. Take care

  2. I was wondering what the flower buds looked like. I am one of those who hates to let plants wither in fall and turn every window sill into a mini greenhouse. Soon, I hope, we will be out in the dirt, planting and digging. I am ready!

  3. Ooh, yours are lovely! My indigo produced pink flowers this past season :) And, I actually was able to harvest many many seeds. Please let me know if your endeavor isn't successful because I would be so happy to share my seeds!! (They are grown in Oakland, CA, and this past year has been pretty wet and chilly).

    1. Thanks so much Jeannie. The 2012 growing season in Yorkshire was a pretty miserable affair. I'll let you know how I get on.
