    The brown ones look like bulb seed, fritillaries?

    and the dark one looks very familiar

    Some kind of lily maybe? Probably not though.image

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    No, neither of those, they are seeds from my garden, not sent to me.

    Might have to sow them and see what comes up Lynimage

    Exactly what I will do Nut... I love the pot luck challenge. As soon as they show leaves we will be able to tell.

    Could the large ones be from a peony of some type? 10mm seeds are few and far between in most gardens.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • The dark ones look like my yellow flag iris seeds.

    The big seeds are acanthus mollis or spinosa.

    Could the other seeds be iris?

  • LynLyn DevonPosts: 15,283

    I haven't got any Acanthus, or spinosa,  but maybe I did collect some from an iris in the pond. They will be easy to identify once germinated.

    not peony Bob. Got some but didn't save seeds.
