Video Tutorials: How to Save Seeds From Flowers


It’s that time of the year again, where most of the annuals in your garden are looking spent and tired. But before you remove the flowers, collect the seeds! Saving seeds is an easy way to increase your stock for next year, save money, and preserve rare heirloom varieties.

There are many flowers that you can collect seeds from, but only save seeds from healthy, vigorous plants! The best time to harvest them is on a sunny day, never on a humid or rainy day. Once you have collected the seeds, make sure they are dried thoroughly before storing in a cool, dry place. And never store seeds in a freezer, as it could kill the seeds!

Here are some video tutorials on how to save seeds from popular flowers:
