How to collect and save grass seeds

Learn how to collect and store seed from ornamental grasses, in our guide.

Many ornamental grasses can be grown easily from seed. Increase or refresh your stock by collecting seeds in autumn, for sowing in spring. They’re simple to collect, and will germinate quickly, producing young plants that will be mature enough to flower by late next summer. Gather the seeds on a dry day, then store in labelled envelopes in a tin somewhere cool and dark, before sowing the following spring.
