In this tutorial, we learn how to collect seeds with Barb Pearson. Where your flowers have formed is where your seed will form. It's best to collect seeds when the seed is dry, after the dew has dried off them in the afternoon. The seeds will be ripe when the pods have begun to open. Seed pods that are still green aren't ready to be collected yet. Pods are ready when they come off the vine easily. The best way to store the seeds is in a paper bag with a label on the outside. You can always clean the chaff off of the seeds later, so don't worry about doing it while you are picking the seeds.
