Saving seed for beginners

If you are starting out and want to be sure of success then some seed is definitely easier to start with – super simple are the bean family, squash and tomato; or if you want to try ornamentals – pot marigolds, nasturtiums, and hollyhocks. If you are an experienced seed saver let us know what has worked best for you and how you save your seed?

    I’ve been growing feverfew and calendula – which seed themselves freely of course – though I thin the self-sown seedlings and plant where I want them as well – both very pretty and attractive to insect pollinators. Hadn’t thought of Zinnias – are they good companion plants?
