For saving seeds choose a healthy, vigorous plant. Take fully ripe, mature seeds and take a well dried ovary of a flower to collect seeds.

Store seeds in tightly-sealed glass containers. Before this put ur seeds in individual paper packets. Keep seeds dry and cool. keep them away from high temperature and humidity. A temperature between 32° and 41°F is ideal, so your refrigerator can be a good place to store seeds. Or keep them in a Almira.

Be sure to label your saved seeds with their name, variety, and the date you collected them. It's too easy to forget the details by the following spring.
