Harvesting Seeds

FREE seeds! I feel seeds are quite pricey at the moment, I bought a packet of sweet peas last week and I was disappointed at the amount I got!

I've read some where or was even told this at some point to collect seed from larger plant's to tie a paper bag around the seed head while it's still on the plant this way you can protect it from the bird's and also collect the seed's more efficiently.

 

Like poppy's will twist when it dry's out to disperse it's seed's

Tie a bag to the flower heads and then just cut the stem when it's finished drying
