I had a great wall of Cobaea Scandens this summer. I saved all the seed pods and want to know how to dry them to save the seed for next year. All my friends want me to start plants for them. Should I dry the entire pod or break them open and dry the seed?

Cobaea, your Cup-and-Saucer vine, will start readily from seeds. You can leave the seeds in the pods until they are entirely dry, then remove the seeds and store them in an airtight container, in a cool, dark place, over the winter months. The seeds should be sown individually in peat pots in the early spring. Plant them 1/4 of an inch deep in moistened growing medium, and place pots in a warm area, such as on top of the refrigerator or on a propagating mat. The seeds should sprout in 21-30 days when kept at 70F - 75F degrees.
