In this video clip from Gardeners’ World, Carol Klein shows you how to collect seeds from perennials such as astrantia, then sow them straight away into seed trays. She also highlights other choice plants to collect seed from, including sweet rocket (Hesperis matronalis), and hardy annuals such as nigella and calendula. If sown now, the seeds should geminate before winter and flower well ahead of their spring-sown counterparts. Watch now to find out how it’s done.
