I planted some mixed seed and a clarkia palnt came up. I would like to gather and replant the seeds. Any help on what the seeds look like would help. Thanks, Happy Girl

RE: gathering clarkia seeds

The seed pods will be where the flower was. It is an oblong pod with many tiny seeds inside. Wait until the pod turns brown and starts to open Then collect the pods in a container. If you do it before this you will get immature seed that won't sprout. Stick your thumbnail in the opening and peel it back. Do this over a piece of white paper so you catch the seed.
