    I find they spread of their own accord Anne but it is fun to experiment anyway 😊

    It is so long since I did it I cannot remember what I did. I do remember that only about a third of them come up black, the rest were just standard green. :good:
    I think I squashed the berries and removed the seeds and sowed them straight away.

    Thank you Allan. :rose: I has another look and indeed, on closer inspection I see several baby shoots coming through which look as if they will turn blacker as they mature. I shall then do like yourself, pop ’em in around the Garden.
    They are lovely Karen, and provide a good contrast to many other plants…good fun :good: :-) :rose:

    It is a Lily relative by the way. I did have one which produced the most odd coloured bluish/green berries. Don’t think I brought it with us when we moved though.

    No thank you. We found it was far too robust for us.

    Ah, interesting, okay :good:
    I like robust … it needs to be here in GG, otherwise the enormous snails and slugs would have a field day! :rose:
