Seed Collecting

It’s the perfect time of year for collecting seeds of bee-friendly plants. Has anybody got any tips? Which plants do you have most success with, and which need most care?

I’ve been collecting lupin, poppy, gernaium and scabious seed this weekend, but hope to try some vetches and red clover next week. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Anthony,

Seems like a good time to reiterate an earlier attempt to start a seed swap - I’ve got some Cerinthe and some Phacelia seeds that I’m willing to send out to anyone that wants some (not very many Cerinthe but they do multiply)

Any takers?
