Saving seeds

Postby Marion » Jul 13, 2008 7:34 pm

I need to get busy saving more of my seeds. I've only harvested seeds a couple of times from coneflowers and four o'clock flowers. Any quick instructions/tips somewhere on this sit for harvesting and storing seeds?

wow, you sure know your plant varieties. I have some you're looking for: clumbines, double hollyhocks, english daisy mix, lots of bright colored plants, possibley some rockcress, asters, and gaillardia (goblin), if I can collect the seeds from my garden. You may have some seeds that I want. I'm looking for some tall plants for the back of my border, shade to sun. I'll talk to you soon.
