On the upside, my 7th generation marigolds and zinnia seeds are growing.

A few years ago, 8 to be exact, a friend told me to save my Marigold and Zinnia seed from the flowers as the die off, place them on paper towels and let them dry. Then she said to place them in a paper bag and re-plant each year instead of buying a 97 cent bag that holds maybe ten. I did and now at year seven, they are growing and each year I collect hundreds of them and I have never had to buy anymore since. So, I thought I would pass that along to my fellow gardening bloggers! It WORKS!

  1. I collected seeds for years when I had a flower garden. Besides filling my own flower beds, I was also able to supply seeds to my sister and some friends. Sorry, seed companies, your seeds didn’t grow nearly as well as mine.
