All the beautiful flowers planted around the property, and previously pictured on my blog, have come to full term. These dry flowers are taken from the plant, and placed in brown lunch bags. The bags are then placed in a dry dark location to make sure the flower dries completely before retrieving the seeds.
I have 7 brown bags of dead flowers to go through and harvest seeds for planting on the property next year and the year after.
Each bag will be gone through to retrieve all the seeds. The seeds will then be placed in a clear bag with the name of the flower type, month and year, and then placed in seed storage (cool, dry, and dark location) until time to start planting again come spring.

I try to save all plant seeds (flower, vegetable, and fruit). Do you save your seeds?
