Collecting and saving seeds is interesting, rewarding, and fun! In this webinar you’ll learn what seeds to look for, when to collect them, and how to store seeds for your wildlife, ornamental, or vegetable garden. We’ll go over the basics: how to determine when various types of seeds are ripe; how to clean different kinds of seeds; how to test for quality; and how to properly store seeds so they remain in optimum condition. Helpful handouts and a list of seed-gathering supplies will be available for attendees upon request.
