Collecting and Saving Seeds • Miami County

Thursday, Oct 3rd, 2013 @ 6:30pm
Miami County Extension Office • 104 South Brayman • Paola, KS • Map

Kansas native plant enthusiasts who wish to have them in their own gardens know that seed-saving is often the best means of acquiring these beauties. Ken O’Dell will demonstrate the basics of seed-saving. He will show various collecting and drying techniques, followed by cleaning and packaging. Proper storage, essential to seed viability, will also be discussed. The final step in seed-saving, next spring’s planting, will be demonstrated to assist participants in achieving a successful outcome.
