I love to collect seed, it’s like hunting out treasure. As the summer changes to autumn the flowers slowly go to seed.
I’m still dead heading my pot marigolds but the ones I miss I frantically collect their seed. Here are the ones I’ve started to collect.
Green shaft peas
Poached egg plant
Marigold (French and pot)
Good King Henry
I will let them dry out in my potting shed then sort the seed from the chaff and packet them up for next spring. Don’t forget to carefully label your seeds nothing worse than wondering what they are in spring.
Best to collect your seed on a nice dry day, and label, label, label!
