Seeds from stems

Seeds from stems

Make buying seeds a thing of the past when you harvest seeds from your own garden!

Flower seeds are formed after the flower itself has died.

Wait until the petals dry and then look for seeds in the center of the flower or under the petals.

Seeds must be harvested before they fall on the ground or they risk getting wet and/or moldy, making them unviable.

Once seeds are visible, cut the stem of the flower and shake it gently over a small paper bag. Seeds should fall from the flower into the bag. If the seeds don’t easily fall from the flower, you may gently remove them using your fingers or a tweezers.

Once removed, spread the seeds out on a paper towel to dry. Ensure the area is dry and free of drafts. Leave the seeds for up to a week, then store in an airtight container for next year’s planting.
