Collecting rosemary seeds

My rosemary has flowered as does have the pods. Can I take the green pods off and let them dry? Will that work? Or do they have to stay othe plant to dry.

RE: Collecting rosemary seeds

Every seed I have ever heard of needs to be dry before harvesting. But new Rosemary plants are best gotten from cuttings. The seeds have a very low germination rate from all I have read. Not only are cuttings easier but much faster. But then the fun is in having success starting anything from seed so let the venture began

RE: Collecting rosemary seeds

This is a Seed Saving question and they have their own forum here. It is direct linked near the top of this forum's page.

But the basic answer is no you cannot. The seeds will still be immature and non-viable. They have to mature on the plant.
