    Default 2018 = Seeds I've saved today

    Its a good time of year to wander around your garden/plot, looking for seed heads to save.
    There's plenty of advice on other threads about how to save various types of seeds, so this thread is just to list those you've collected and inspire the rest of us.
    They don't have to be seeds for swapping, just saved for your own satisfaction.

    Today, I've saved:-
    Chives,
    Nigella
    Calendula.
    Make 2019 the Year of Random Seed sowing
    @realveggiechicken

    All we are saying is..........Give seeds a chance.

    This week, foxgloves, musk mallow, calendula - one was a lovely primrose yellow colour, but no doubt it's crossed with the bright orange next to it and won't come the same colour from seed, oriental poppy, and sweet rocket.

    Last week, annual poppies.

    I'm spreading seeds from Welsh Poppy, Wild Foxglove, Old fashioned mop head Aquilegia and a few Honesty and Pansies for next year, the rest of the weeds don't seem to need my help lol.
