Harvesting Zinnia Seeds


Clip off 6" below heads

Dry Upside Down

Clip off heads

Zinnia Seeds and Petals

Let dry completely before sealing
When your zinnias start to fade,  clip them off about six inches below the heads and dry upside down.  When dry - clip the heads and seperate the seeds from the petals.  Package the seeds for next year and the petals for potporri gifts.  Don't seal the packages yet,  store them open several more days to make sure they are dry.
