    Hi MsB, I bought 5 plants this year and I'm really taken with them, have saved some seeds and  wondered if it's worth having a go or not. I've more paper bags / envelopes with stuff in and do wonder if I'll actually do anything with them.

    I've not offered anything on seed swap in case I've not saved / stored correctly..if I have some success I'll participate next year.

    You may as well try as you have the seed there. Be interesting to see if they grow.

    I'll have a go Mattbeer, will also report back.

  • I have tried and tried without success,I understand the seeds must be planted as soon as gathered.What I do is pot up and carry over my Gerberas.Two of my favorites.

    Otnorot, they are lovely, love the first the most.

    Mine are in pots and I've just put them in the GH, not too cold, but getting sodden. I might sew the seeds I've saved ASAP, but they have been inside drying a while, along with many others "cluttering all available surfaces." ( or so I'm told)image

    Thanks for reply & photos.
