Seed Saving Idea


 

Saving Seeds the Easy Way 
Gardening Tip submitted by Colleen Fiegel  of New Orleans Plant Swap

  Colleen Fiegel                         Jatropha glossypiifolia with a seed pod                      Covered seed pod

       

     Colleen wanted to make sure that she had enough seeds to supply all of the request for her double purple Datura. Therefore she needed to make sure that her seed pods did not unexpectedly burst broadcasting her seeds everywhere. To that end, she invested in those clear mesh party favor/ potpourri bags at the Dollar Tree, (6 pack for $1) to cover the seed pods. Great solution, and as those bags have drawstrings you just place them over the seed pods and tighten the strings.
