|I started harvesting my seeds this afternoon. 2 hours in and one small seed stalk later and I'm nearly going blind collecting them individually with a tooth pick! What's the best way to get the maximum number of seeds with the minimum effort?|

OHHHH poor Kate's eyes. I cannot answer your question but I do hope someone else can help you.

|Thanks for the link Lynn, looks like I'm being too fussy lol |
Here's what I have so far all are from an Arach Mum and insect pollenated so could be from any of my other plants.

|Sneeze? I hardly dared to breathe collecting these! |

You are so bad T-rev. When I read your post I felt a great urge to sneeze.
That would sure be a disaster.
Wow Kate, that is some clean looking seeds, and a bunch of them at that.
