    My reds have finished flowering. I think it's the same as you have already so am I ok to dead head?

    Judging by the ones I had before which grew, the black ones are the fertile ones.

    BTW the seeds which I put to soak a few days ago have all sunk, so I think that's a good first sign.

    I've seen the wild peony seed heads that are saved for conservation. They're left on the plant and each head splits into 3, like a chicken's foot. Each toe cracks open to reveal a row of seeds inside. These seeds were black and red and I was told that one colour was fertile, the other not. Unfortunately, I don't remember which.

    I've never saved peony seed before either!!
    I would keep it in the plant for as long as possible letting it dry naturally.
    Thank you SelkirkAlex!





    Good practice for joining in one of our seed circles ?

    Leave it on the plant until the seed case starts to split would be my thought - never tried it myself though, so may be wrong.

    Yes please! If you can bear to keep the seed head it on the plant long enough to dry out.

    Having looked at the seeds they seem a reasonable size, but obviously very hard and dry. So I've put them to soak and will do this for the next few days. Then it will be in to some vermiculite in zip-lock bags etc - wait 18 months, and hopefully Bob's your mother's brother.

    Well my 80 seeds for 2.99 from China just arrived - how they make a profit on these deals beats me.

    it remains now to find out if I can get any of them to germinate :-)
