Dead zinnias

Simply cut off these tips as the flowers fade and dry them in a container. You can use the flats that the annuals came were in when you bought the plants in spring.Dried seeds

When they are dry, remove the old flower pedals and you will have an enlarged acorn shape batch of seeds.

stages of dryingStore them in a paper bag or something that will allow the seed heads to dry thoroughly and not mold. In the spring, simply break apart each head and you will have many seeds for you to start in cell packs from last year’s annuals.

You can also just plant the seeds in your flower beads and they will bloom just a little later than started earlier in cell packs.

Zinnia Plants

Remember to try to select seeds from different heads to get different colors, shapes and size of plants. A good tip keep in mind is top reuse different pots, packs and trays for different needs for each season.
