Question for Richard about Yvonne's seeds
I know that Yvonne collected seeds from her salvia splendens when her plants reach 6 ft. She gave them to Emily to distribute all over the country. Emily's plants also reached 6ft and she gave her seeds out to garderners.
My plants start blooming at 3ft have seeds, bloom again at 4ft have more seeds and another flush of flowers at 5ft or so with seeds just before the frost gets them around Dec . Are seeds of a 3 ft plant only going to grow plants of 3ft? Should I only collect seeds of the 5 ft plant at the end of the season for bigger plants? It seems such a waste of seeds. Thank you for your help.
