This year I’ve tried to be better at seed saving. Unfortunately we lost most of our vegetable garden in the flood that hit Haywood County; but I was able to save seeds from a few flowers and my okra!
I’ve never saved flower seeds before, but this year I saved both Zinnia and Sunflower seeds. My Sister-In-Law told me how to save Zinnia seeds and it was super easy.
Pick Zinnia to enjoy in a vase. Once they start to wilt, allow them to dry. I removed the tops of the flowers from the stems and slayed them in a warm, sunny spot to dry out. Once they are dry you can pull the petals off and the seed will be attached to the end of the petal. It will look like an arrowhead. You can pull the petals off the seed or leave the petals attached. Store in a dry place.
