How should I store the margold seeds that I have picked from my plants over the winter and use the seeds to plant next year.

Heat, light and moisture are enemies of stored seeds so the first step is to place them on a paper towel or in a paper envelope and set them in a cool, dry place for a week or 10 days to make sure the seeds are dry. Then seal them in a plastic bag or glass jar with a lid and place them in a cool, dark place. I set mine on the floor of the linen closet and then I make a note on my calendar to plant them in
April. I hope you enjoy your marigolds next year!
