Saving seed is a skill any gardener can learn.  It takes planning, observation and relinquishing space and time for plants to complete their life cycle.  Seed growing guides are a great reference for learning how to dry and store them properly.  We have listed our favorites below.

What is most important is to match the resources from any text with the personality of your garden, the soil, the sun, the water, the insects, the surrounding landscape.  The plants and seed that grow well with your garden personality will be unique.  Save that seed.  Plant it and continue your selection for what does best for you.
