The Q&A Archives: Platycodon

Question: Now that my balloon flowers have finished blooming and the seeds are forming, I'd like to save some seeds for planting next year. Do I save the whole "pod" and plant that or should I open the "pod" and remove the seeds?

Answer: Once the pods are quite dry and nearly ready to burst open, harvest them. When they are very dry, open them to release the seeds.
