A Guide to Harvesting Zinnia Seeds
Lets go! >>>
First things first, timing is everything. To harvest zinnia seeds, you need to let the flowers do their thing throughout the growing season.
These are the little pods that contain the magic of zinnia seed saving. You’ll notice that the petals have dried and fallen off, leaving behind the seed heads.
Now comes the fun part – harvesting zinnia seeds! Grab a pair of scissors or garden shears and carefully snip off the seed heads.
Place your freshly harvested seed heads in a dry place. I like to use a paper bag with small holes punched in it, as it allows for good air circulation while keeping the seeds contained.
Now that you’ve successfully harvested and dried your zinnia seeds, it’s time to save them for future planting.
