|Packet of flowering plant seeds|
Over the years so many plants have been tried, I have learnt this after trying hard to collect seeds from my flowering plants. Many times the wait would continue after planting new seeds, days would pass and then months and no sign of growth!!!
Here I have planted seeds from Kerala nursery and always as we visit any hill station some plant bulbs and seeds do come along as the obsession continues to clam some more in the small space we have under the sun !. Last time was a beautiful lilly bulbs and flowering plant seeds from Ooty.
The most important point in collection of seeds is to take a careful look at whether the marigold, zinnias, sunflower and many other flowering plants that give out seeds, have dried on the plant. Plucked flowers I have tried do not give good quality seeds. it is the process of maturation and drying under the direct sunlight on the plant that makes the seeds good quality for next growth.
|Buy according to the label from reputed plant nurseries|
|Expose the opened seeds to sunlight|
|label the pots carefully after planting|
Now the process of protection from your side begins, protect the new saplings from birds and over watering. Cover with mesh or net cloth to keep the new plant sapling protected from being feasted upon, sparrows and pigeons, all my bird friends, and of course rats love new leaves!
