seeds from last years annuals?

mashell(z3 MT)April 20, 2010

I was cleaning up around the place today and several of the flower boxes from last summer still have some of the (dead) plants in them and need to be cleaned out. I started to clean them up and noticed the snapdragons, marigolds, and osteospermum still had some seeds! Any chance these may be good after wintering over outside on the plants?

Thank you!

Hi Mashell,
If the seeds were completely ripe before winter came along, then yes. If you are not sure, you can always do a paper towel germination test on some of the seeds since they are all warm temp germinators.
