When is the right time to pick the seeds?
Heres my theroy, tell me if its OK. When the peddles fall off of the whole flower I cut the flower off the stalk. I dry the flower with the seeds still attached until the top leafy thing falls off of the seed and then I pick out the seeds. I leave them in the garage over the winter and then they are ready to plant next year.
How close am I?
My concern is am I taking them off the stalk to soon?
are the seeds mature enough at this time?
Last year I think I lost about 1/2 of them because I waited too long to take them off the stalk and they became moldy.
