Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire Col­lect seeds

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

It’s well worth while col­lect­ing the seed of cer­tain gar­den plants and late sum­mer is a good time to do it. As a gen­eral prin­ci­ple, it’s bet­ter to col­lect seeds from species rather than hy­brids, as the for­mer are more likely to come true. De­cide your vic­tims and step forth with a brown-pa­per bag la­belled with plant name and date. Care­fully place it over the seed­head, cut the stem and in­vert the lot. Re­turn to the pot­ting shed and sep­a­rate seed from ex­tra­ne­ous mat­ter, then seal the bag and add it to the box with the oth­ers. SCD
