Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

They're a great colour for Autumn. Are they easy to grow from seed?

Really easy. I collected loads of seed last year and still got loads left plus I’m collecting little bits more this year, so I could send you some if you wanted? @anges

@charlotte Oh no I’m really sorry to hear that. How dreadful that some people can be so mean! I read something the other day about other people having nasty comments said to them on here too. So sad as it’s such a great app. Please don’t disappear from here, I love seeing your posts as a fellow veggie, and I’m rubbish at growing veg so I’m often in awe of those that can.

Yay! Love the red ones ❤️ grew marigolds for the first time last year and they just went on forever! Even in the heatwave they were the one thing to look consistently great 😋

Don't forget to deadhead them and save seeds too. Dead heading encourages new growth too. You might get lucky and get a few more flowers before winter sets in there. Xoxo

@jendren thanks. 😊 how long do I need to leave them to dry before I store them away?

Those look pretty dry to me. When the seeds come away like that then they’re ready. Put the seeds in a paper envelope /bag so they don’t sweat.
