Video: collect the seeds of your favorite plants

Do you particularly like a plant that you have seen in a friend's house, in the wild, on a trip, or that is found in your home? Would you like to plant more immediately or in the years to come? Instead of rushing into a garden center, you can simply harvest its seeds and take care of its own planting and development. Ophélie, gardening coach, gives you some advice on how to recover these seeds, in order to keep your favorite plants over the years.

Hollyhock

This plant has the distinction of making flowers along its stem. Once these have wilted, they turn into seeds that you can recover. That said, it is important to wait until they are ready for harvest. In the case of the hollyhock, they must be very black, a little spaced, and above all ready to fall on their own. At this stage, you can therefore harvest the seeds directly, or cut the stem and place it in a dry place for later use.

Poppy

As it fades, the poppy flower will form a receptacle that will harden, until it opens on top. This flare marks the end of the maturation of seed production. At this point, you can simply unhook the container and collect the seeds in a small container.

Exotic plants

If you have the opportunity to go abroad, you can also try to bring seeds of exotic plants. For example, Ophélie obtained cotton, cocoa and papaya seeds during a stay in Togo. On the other hand, some may not be able to develop in France, because of our climate. You now know how to collect seeds from various plants. It's up to you to choose if you want to keep them or replant them directly. In any case, your favorite plants will now be close at hand! Find Harvest seeds and flower seeds on Minutefacile.com.
