purple coneflower seeds saving
Hi, I am trying to save purple coneflower seeds from faded flowers, yet I don't know which part is the real seed. Please look at the pic:
Image A. I shook or pulled the spiky needles out. They have both the needle parts and the black stuff together.
Image B. I separated the black stuff and only left the needle parts there.
Image C. The black stuff. I think that those ARE the seeds???
Image D. The black stuff with a thin membrane around.
Please tell me which part is the seed. Thanks.
