Cut off the spent flowers and put them in a brown paper bag. Store the bag in dry place like a closet until the weather makes you stay indoors.

Don't forget when you put the flowers/seedheads in the bag to label the bag. Al

Al, does this work for Pansies, too? And do you put the seed in a paper envelope and then do they need cold temps for a while?

RE: seeds from flowering plants

When I collect seeds for any plant, I always let them dry in a paper bag. If the seeds have a fleshy coating, I soak them first and then let them dry. I have had lots of success with differnt seeds. I use markers to label the bags and I can always reuse them after I package the seeds. I keep brown paper lunch bags all the time.........
