fuschia seeds

hamey(Z9 FLA Pasco County)March 27, 2009

Ok, I was brain-dead today and when I finally found the Fuschia plant I wanted. I put it in the back of my SUV and didn't think anything about it rolling around.. but it did!! So, I have several flowers and I need to know, do I save them for drying out and get the seeds from them or how does it work? I do have lots of pieces that I will start up in water and in a day or 2 the large hanging basket will be beautiful again.. then I got a hummingbird feeder in the mail hand blown glass about 1/8" thick that was broken..

Do the flowers need to stay on the plant long enough for it to make seed? or are the seeds there now. Do I just toss them? For future reference, tell me when the flower goes to seed please. Thanks Karen

The spent flower needs to stay on the plant until a seed pod forms and ripens in order for you to have mature seeds to harvest.
