Seed Saving

Saving Marigold Flower Seeds & Money! :thumb:
I've done this with marigold seeds on many occasions. They're probably the easiest seed there is to save and use the following year. I've also had good luck with radish seeds and a few others too.

My parents used to save seeds from one year to use the next year. Some plants were easy and reliable as far as the seed goes, but for others it was better to just buy seed at the store. Onion, garlic, marigolds, radishes and a few others were easy, but we never had great luck with a few others.

What is the Scatterseed Project?
Interesting project. I like the idea of maintaining biodiversity and the work this guy does to undermine the corporate agenda to make farmers dependent on their products.
