Pumpkin seeds


Growing your own vegetables does not have to be expensive at all - simply save the seeds from your kitchen waste instead of throwing them away. Seed saving is a wonderful way to invest in your future, and it is so cheap, easy and fun to do. With a little bit of planning you will never need to buy seedlings from commercial growers again.

How to save seeds:

Next time you're making pumpkin soup, set aside the seeds, give them a good wash and let them dry out in the sun for a few weeks. Store the seeds in clearly labelled jars/bags/containers for planting at the appropriate time of year.

Capsicum seeds


Create a "seed bank":

Capsicum and tomato seeds can easily turn mouldy, so just make sure they are really well dried before storing for the future. You can even create your own "seed bank" and offer a variety of seeds as gifts to encourage friends and family to get into the garden.

Sunflower seeds


Sunflower seeds are a great seed saving investment as each individual seed creates hundreds of seeds in turn. They are also such a cheerful addition to any garden or front step. One single lettuce can produce 100,000 seeds in turn, so let your lettuce run to seed and save those tiny babies for next year. For more information visit Seedsavers and happy gardening.

This has prompted me to save more seeds, it's such a great idea for saving money and for growing your own.
Happy seed saving - you will eventually be well rewarded for your efforts with plenty of homegrown treats.
