Don’t waste your marigold seeds from those gorgeous blooms you saw this fall! Save the seeds for next season in this cute marigold seed packet that can also be used as a gift for your favorite gardener.
I absolutely LOVE to plant flowers and watch them grow. Sometimes I will buy the starter plants, but what I truly enjoy is seeing these little beauties sprout from seeds. There’s just something about watching a seed grow from the tiniest of specimen into a gorgeous green beanstalk with the prettiest of blooms.
However, I’m always so sad when it’s the end of the season and the plants are dying off leaving behind their legacy in the form of a darkened stem.
That’s when I decided to stop this vicious cycle by collecting the seeds of my favorite flowers to ensure that I will always be able to enjoy their family heirs time after time.
Currently, my flower of choice to start this adventure with is the deliciously well-know specimen known as the marigold.
And here’s how I did it:
- First things first, I used an old, mesh-like jewelry bag to store my pollinated flower blooms into.
- I cut them off of the plan and then allowed my blooms to dry out in the bag naturally.
- Then, print out this instant download (link at the top of the page), follow the directions, and glue it all together.
- After the bloom has dried I can separate the seeds out and put them into my seed packet for next year or even for gifts.
