#columbine #seed #pod - I was watching for it to brown, and it did a bit... But as soon as I saw the top split open, I grabbed the pods to bring inside. Just tilt over and tall, and viola! @Acetaker

@PunkyKy that's awesome!! I finally got lilies to germinate, and now I don't know what to do with them all. Lol.

@Bebigirl unfortunately, planting times are my weakness. I tend to start too late, but I'm getting it. I let the seeds fully dry indoors, then transfer them to KFC bowls (seriously, the kind you get coleslaw in! I love them! They're #free and they snap nicely in case I drop the container... And they stack too.) Then I separate them into little envelopes (normally paper, but sometimes tiny plastic baggies) so that I can share them with everyone.

@Bebigirl the only downside I've run into is I think a few of the seed varieties might need cold treatment, which I am still learning. So some might be better to be planted right away, versus storing until next spring. I'm still testing things out, but when seeds are free I don't worry too much about what doesn't work.

#columbine #purple #seed #pods ?

I always think these pods look like jester hats! This time of year I try to cut down the ones that (I think) have boring colours, trying to make the more spesial ones reproduce instead. (Though I know they rarely do - because normal wins, I guess)

@jennlamaye this is what I found on seed collection. Thanks for the reminder to look that up! http://mrbrownthumb.blogspot.com/2010/10/how-to-collect-columbine-flower-seeds.html?m=1 #colmbine #seed #seed-collecting

@emve that is interesting! Can you tell the colors by the pod? (This is my first year with columbines.)

@jessielynn Thank you so much for the info! Perfect! :)

No sorry. You just have to remember the color from the flower. But there is no guarantee the seedlings will have the same color as the mother plant. It is a game of chance, I guess😁

@emve Ha! Thanks! I was going to start inspecting the seed pods to see if they were different colors. ;-)
