Possibly a bumper crop of Birmingham seed ?

Recommended Posts

The reason I say " possibly a bumper crop "  is because I've had little success with Birmingham's producing seed in 3-4 years . My biggest Birmy has nothing on it now in the way of inflorescences ( it has  been like  that for 3 years , and after a great crop back then  ? )  , but my second biggest looks to be possibly loaded with seed . Lots of inflorescences with lots of flowering , and at a normal time for them to mature .

There are 3  inflorescences like this one , and a couple small ones too . I don't know why my biggest one is not flowering anymore . It's the one that produced so much seed a few years ago ?  :

Are the inflorescences still with flowers? All my minors are with fruit.
