The Q&A Archives: Seeds From Bouquet

Question: I want to start a little flower garden out on our deck from some flowers that my husband brought home in a bouquet. Can I get seeds from these carnations, mums, and a white daisy-like flower? I would like to "recycle" these beautiful flowers.

Answer: I like your idea of recycling the flowers, but unfortunately you won't find many, if any, seeds in flowers from a florist. They're specifically grown and forced into bloom under controlled circumstances and, without pollinating insects like bees to visit each flower, there won't be any viable seeds. If you'd like to keep the thought alive, why not purchase seeds of exactly the same flowers as were in your bouquet and plant them outdoors in your garden?
