Magnolia

It's been too wet to do an allotment video update this weekend. Instead I bring you the weird sight of our Magnolia tree with it's very alien looking seed pods. It is Halloween afterall!

With apologies for the shaky camera work.

I've not seen that before, though I don't have a magnolia tree in my garden, I know of several. Do you think the mild autumn has given them a chance to mature? I'd certainly try to plant them, though (having looked up info) they take years to flower and are chancy even to germinate. Here's how, anyway - http://www.thompson-morgan.com/info/articles/magnolias.html
