Weekend Gardener - Storing Seeds

By  | 

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - This week on Weekend Gardener, we're talking about saving seeds. On Friday, Jayla Fry with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service brought an old sunflower into the studio to serve as an example.

Fry says you can save seeds from tomatoes, peppers, and other vegetables, along with many types of flowers. "But there are a couple of tricks you need to know," Fry said.

First, seeds need to be very dry before storing and secondly, store them in a cool and dry place.

Fry says it's important to remember that seeds are alive. See the video player above for more details.
