|Saving Marigold Seeds|
This past Spring the seeds were planted in a pot. Somehow, a few seeds also found a home with the Zinnia seeds in our side garden. How did that ever happen??? Then, we had a lot of rain. Oops, not good for germinating seed! Well, one plant did grow in the pot & 3 other Marigolds were lookin' good with the Zinnia plants. A little transplanting to the pot was in order. Guess what???

If you've been enjoying Marigolds all summer, save some of the seeds, too! Next spring after all danger of frost has left your area, plant the seeds outside. They can also be planted inside in containers in early Spring, if possible.
I have plans for next year's gardens!!! It's so cool to grow plants from seed, especially when you've harvested the seeds from the previous year's flowers!
Do you save seeds from flowers in your garden to grow the following year?
