If you're interested in collecting seeds from your plants, you can do so at any time during the spring and summer months - whenever your flowering plants develop seed pods. When the flowers fade and the petals fall off, a seed pod will form. You can harvest the seeds when the seed pod dries out, but before it bursts open. It might take a little practice to determine when the seed pods are ripe but eventually you'll get the timing down. To save seeds, place them in a paper envelope and set that in an airtight container. Store the container in a cool, dry place and plant your seeds next spring. Enjoy!
