I dont need to tell you what a wet year its been and I have been having great difficulty harvesting seeds for next year. However, about two weeks ago I cut some very wet stems from some Agastache and some Verbena Bonas { cant spell the rest of that },put them in paper bags and hung them upside down in the porch. Today I have just harvested lovely dry seeds ready for spring.

This year when I collected seeds to dry I used supermarket mushroom bags. I tied the stallks and hung the flower heads into the bag. Then gathered up the top and suspended from some hooks. The length of them means there is plenty of room for the seeds to drop.

That's a good idea Tinker Bauble. I'll build up a supply between now and seed harvest.

I'm in my first year of collecting seeds, nothing better than sowing them to get more plants

Good tip re the mushroom bags,I've been using the brown prepaid envelopes that come with utility bills

Don't pay for mushroom bags

Thing is with those bags if you put too many mushrooms in the bags split, now I see it's much better to spread the purchase over a couple of bags

And accidently pick up 2 (or more) at a time

You can't have too many mushroom bags
