I was working in the yard yesterday and thinking about seed saving, we must have been on the same wavelength. I hope to have snapdragon seeds to save this year other than that, most of what I have is bulbs. I did find our old sunflower seeds from several years ago this weekend and am going to try and plant them even though they are a bit old. Maybe we can eventually have a seed swop.
I have lots of seeds from last year. Morning glories, some kind of flower that grows in Korea, and marigolds and four o'clocks. I haven't planted any yet though. Last year my neighbor told me to just pull the seeds off the plants and save them in a dry place in envelopes. Maybe tomorrow I will try to plant a few and see if they come up.
I saved some peony seeds, but that's all so far this year.
For those saving seeds, what are you storing them in and where? I was thinking maybe in a glass jar, but then thought that might be a bad thing. Maybe just toss them in an envelope and in a drawer.
I traded for a bunch of saved seeds. I'm excited to see what grows next spring.
I should plant some hostas, i have heard they grow like mad. Not much has come up this year at my house for seed saving. I have some morning glories sprouting right now. I hope so bad that they flower and seed, id like to save some seeds for next year. I would love to swap too if i do have seeds that I can save.
