Saving Flower Seeds to Use in Next Year's Garden

I love collecting seeds from favorite flowers to grow in next year's gardens.

Seed saving is the practice of keeping seeds or other reproductive material from flowers, vegetables, grains, and herbs, for use from year to year. It’s a rewarding pastime, a great way to save money, and the most economical way to produce new plants for the garden. It’s also a nice way to share well-loved plants and flowers with family and friends. Just before a brief soaking rainstorm yesterday, my gardeners harvested lots of seeds from some of the season's fading blooms.
