How long should I wait to plant the marigold seeds I’ve harvested from the flowers in my garden? Can I plant them this fall or do I need to wait until next spring?
I picked these seeds almost a month ago and in another couple months, they should be pretty dry. But will they be dry enough to plant? I also picked more seeds last night, and as I was plucking them from the dead flower heads, it me. This isn’t Wisconsin anymore. Here in central Texas, maybe I can get a fall/early winter crop of marigolds, too!
Is there any reason not to plant seeds from summer flowers right away this fall? Is there such a thing as too much stress on the seed if planted in the ground so quickly?
I don’t know, but I think I’m going to try it. After all, I don’t have much to lose. I’ll have plenty of seeds left over for next spring, too!
And if there are seeds that drop on their own, they will grow when they want! I have seeded both fall and spring with marigolds so just experiment and have fun, I say.
