Saving marigold seeds to replant for next year.

This year was my first year attempting to grow a few flowers from seed.  One of the flowers that I picked was the marigold.  Marigolds are easy to grow, last all season and are easy to start from seed.  All of the above attributes are awesome however the best thing about marigolds are they are very easy to save seeds from the flower.

To save marigold seeds, you simply wait for the flower head to dry down and then you pluck out the seeds.  Once you pick a few marigold seeds, you will be amazed how many seeds you get from one flower.  It is also sort of fun.  My family and I spent about an hour the other day picking seeds.  We picked at least a thousand!  We will save these seeds next year to replant and keep the strain going.  All for free!

Check out some of the pics from our fun day.

Try growing marigolds next year from seed and then saving and replanting  them.  You will be glad that you did!
