    Whether it is a flower or a vegetable it is the first yield that needs to be retained on the plant or creeper. After it is totally dried it should be picked up and once again kept in the sun for drying. The flower or pod needs to be opened and the seeds aired for sometime and then carefully kept in airtight containers.

    They should be sown in the right season and not immediately after they are made available. marigold1.jpg

    We always collect the seeds not only of the plants in our garden but also the seeds of fruits that we eat. We have a load of squash seeds, watermelon and melon, even mangoes. We dry them and kept for a possible use. And although we already have some seedlings, we still remain ready in case we have to plant more seeds because friends and relatives come to us when they need seedlings or saplings for their garden. Of course, we give them for free that's why they come to us all the time.

    Nice that you give away saplings. There are not many here who keep gardens. All what they have is a bit of greenery. You seem to be well into gardening. Keep it up.
