Hi everyone I cut these seed pods off my merigolds and was wondering if i can just dry them in a paper bag and save the seeds.
Most are pretty dry.
Usually. Full doubles will not germinate as well others. Indeed some full doubles may not germinate at all. Many will however germinate and often, but not always, result in a good looking plant and flower.
Albert, please explane further what full doubles means I have no idea please. How do I properly harvest marigold seeds?
Double. Said of flowers that have more than the usual number of floral envelopes, particularly of petals; full.

In the bottom of the first pic, is what you want to save. Yes, put them in a paper bag. Once completely dry, the good seeds will not be easily bendable. You can tell bad marigold seed pretty easy. They are super flexible.
