|2nd Generation Marigolds|
All summer we've enjoyed our vibrant yellow & orange colored Marigolds. They add a beautiful touch of color to our yard. The plants with the orange flowers are 3rd generation from a single plant that my wonderful cute grandsons gave me for Mother's Day 2 years ago. I have every intention of keeping that original plant family going for more years. It's becoming a FuN tradition! Saving the seeds to plant again next spring is my plan! It is easy & does not take much time.
Saving Marigold Seeds
- Look for the dried blossoms on the Marigold plants (in lower left photo above).
- Break off the dried pods.
- Place in an open envelope to continue drying.
- After a month or so- when completely dry, separate all of the seeds from the pods.
- Place seeds in another envelope. Label/ date/ seal envelope.
- Store until next year!
