Last fall I let the last of my Marigold flowers go to seed on the plants. Once they were brown and withered, I pinched the dried seed heads off and left them on a cookie sheet to dry out completely.
I stored them in a saved blueberry container.
Last week after I worked up my soil, I pushed the seed heads into the soil to see if they would sprout.
I tried it last summer to fill in a few empty spots and was pleased with the results. Hopefully it will turn out as well this spring.
But if Bill C-18 passes here in Canada, our rights to save and plant seeds might be hindered. For more information, head on over to Susan's blog As Long As You Have a Garden for more information. -- Margy
