You don’t need to run to the store each year for a fresh batch of seeds. Seed saving is a great way to continue your garden from the plants and flowers you already have. Saving seeds also allows you to select particular characteristics you might like to cultivate by choosing fruits or plants with those traits. In this program, we'll cover:
Methods used to collect seeds
Seed storage techniques
Seed stratification process
