Today I started collecting seeds from my gardens. There’s not a lot ready yet but the Spring blooming flowers are going dormant so it’s time for me to get busy. This year (due to a couple of questions I got on Facebook) I’m going to try and photograph and record the look of the dried seed pods and the seeds themselves as I collect them. I’ll also include a photo of the plant’s flower in full bloom for reference. So far I’ve collected 4 different types of seeds. In general, try to wait to collect your own seeds until your flower / seed pod is almost completely brown. In most instances, the seeds will release quickly from the seed head at that time. There are a few stubborn exceptions to the rule of course. You can click on the pictures below to get a larger view.
Columbine “Bordeaux Barlow”. Blooms are about 1.5″ across and seed pods are about the same size in length. They have tiny, black seeds that are only about 1 or 2 mm long.
