Harvesting flower seeds
Hi my name is Idrees, a student at the university of Huddersfield. I want to find out what are your frustrations when collecting seeds and if there are any ways it could make it easier.
Unless you can arrange the weather to suit, I'd suggest not
You can tie a paper bag over a seed head - that will work if it stays dry.
You can collect seed pods when they are almost ripe and hang them up ( again in a paper bag ) somewhere dry.
I don't think the average amateur gardener is that concerned. More of a problem for a commercial grower and presumably they have suitable methods in hand
I just let mine seed themselves where they want. I can move/remove any plants that are in the way. Wildflowers look more natural if self sown and I like the serendipity of it.
