Seed Saving | Marigolds & Zinnias

Summer is over, but it's never too soon to plan for your garden next year! I waited until all my marigolds, and zinnias dried out, and saved the flowers for gardening next year. When the flowers turned brown, I just popped the flowers off the plant, separated the seeds, dried them out completely, and stored the seeds in an envelope.

My marigolds, and zinnias were both heirloom (purchased from Botanical Interests). So, when I replant my seeds next year they will be an exact duplicate of what I previously planted. Can't wait to plant them for spring 2015, but I don't want to rush my fall gardening.
