When the seed pod turns brown you can pick them. There are a bunch of tiny, tiny black seeds inside. Allow them to dry a couple of days and then store them where the temperature stays cool. You can use paper envelopes, plastic bags, baby food containers, etc. to store them in.

I planted nicotiana from seed last season with wonderful results. I saved some of those seeds but had no need for them as they reseeded themselves prolifically.

Hi, I planted a new pack of nicotania seeds in my veggie garden about a month ago, and I haven't seen a single green shoot. Could it have been too chilly? Some nights did get down to 45 or so on occasion. I'm in Texas. Thanks!
