Collecting Seed !?!

Category: Village Square | Posted: Mon Jun 09, 2008 11:17 pm

I need advice on seed collection. How does one know when seed is ready to collect? Can they be dried in microwave or do they like to be air dried? So many questions - do I store in baggies or jars, in cupboard or refrigerator? Those tiny specks that hold the genes for new plant life are a total mystery to me. I will search and collect and replant and hope that they come to life to start a new cycle.

I haven't done much seed collecting I'm afraid, but some of the Stewbies have done this for years with great success. I hope they'll be along to help you. I pick the pods when they're just starting to open, leave the seed on a piece of paper towel to dry, and put them in envelopes for storage.
