I love my herb garden. My basil plant now has flowers which I guess is where the seeds are. When is it time to get the seeds for next year and what should I do pack and store them. Is it the same for parsley...I have flat leaf parsley that I would like to replant next year as well. What about Zinnias?

When the basil flowers turn brown then you will find the seeds inside. I usually pick them before the top flowers turn brown.

Parsley as soon as the floret turns brown pick it and place it in a bag. Shake to loosen the seeds

Zinnia Let the petals turn brown. At the end of the petal are the seeds.
