I have saved milk thistle seed and have had good germination rates. Wear thick gloves the seeds are hard to remove from the dried flower head. File the seed until you have cut through the hard outer coating (I hold seed in a pair of plyers and file with a metal file) and soak for a day or two in warm water seems to help.
