I hope everyone had a great Christmas and I wish for you a happy and healthy 2015! Does anyone know the name of this plant? I really spread by self-seeding. The first picture is when it was flowering and the second photo is when the new seedlings were starting to grow. Thanks for your help.

It's not easy to tell for sure without a closer view. It looks like a type of 'Wallflower' or Erysimum.

Do you have a higher resolution of that first photo? That way it can be enlarged.

Thank you Zuzu and Zencat. I think you are right. My plant looks just like the Basket-of Gold Alyssum. I will be sure to mark it as such. I am going to have to cut it back after the flowers fade to keep it from reseeding. Thanks for the help. Much appreciated.

Or you could bag the seed heads, save the seed and offer to share some of that cheerful plant. Thumbs up

I will need to do some research on how to collect its seeds. I have saved many seeds from my plants this year and the past couple of years. I have some seeds that I do not know what plant they belong to so they have a ? on the package. Some I know what flower it is from but do not know its exact name. Some of the plants that I have seeds for are: Delphinium, Lupine, Columbine, Purple Coneflower, Double Hollyhocks, Garlic plant, and others I can't remember at this moment. I need to buy some envelopes to put the seeds in so if anyone wants them, I can send them. Thanks for the suggestion. Thank You! Thumbs up

Lots of good information available for seed saving. Check out the forums about seeds here on ATP. Also check the wildflower forum. Lot's of members can toss good information at you for collecting and identifying seeds. You could look at this site which has over 900 images of seeds: http://www.theseedsite.co.uk/seedsize9.html

Don't know what stores are close to you.
To pack my seeds for sharing I buy small plastic craft bags, 2 inches by 3 inches at A C Moore craft store.
Most craft stores or craft departments may have similar bags; Walmart has them. Of course, it's sometimes easier to just order from an online source.

Learned (the hard way) to NOT put a sticky label on the plastic bags. I find it's better to write/type the info on a paper and place it inside each bag.
@rattlebox was kind enough to send me a template so I could create uniform paper labels.

For very small seeds, or for uncooperative seeds, some folks first fold the seeds into a small piece of paper (like an Origami fold) before putting the seeds into the plastic bags.

Thank you so much Greene for the information. I do have those small clear plastic bags which is what I put them in for storing. But I was thinking of small paper envelopes from a catalog named Uline. They call the envelopes coin envelopes. I thought about taking pictures of my flowers and putting a small picture on each envelope showing what the flower looks like.

Yes, some people do use the 'coin' envelopes. Just remember to test the envelopes to make sure the seeds won't sneak out of the seams and cracks.
Adding a photo will look very nice.

Someone had posted a link with a template to envelopes. If I can find the link I'll add it here later.

gardenglassgems,
check on line some more if you don't make your own, Uline is very high price wise. I only ordered from them the things I could not get anywhere else when I was in business.

My mom just ordered a big bunch of glacine envelopes. @abhege where are yours from?

I use a glacine envelope inside a paper envelope. Or sometimes a tiny plastic baggie if the seeds are large

Thanks for the info, Jennifer and Seedfork. The coin envelopes that Uline has are 2 1/2 in X 3 1/2 in , 500 for $13. They have bigger sizes for a few $ more. I didn't think that was such a bad price. They are the brown color but also have white ones. Not sure what size I would want. I doubt that I would ever use 500 envelopes but you never know.
Thanks for your help.
