 How to Save Seeds

Salsify can cross pollinate so keep separated by at least 500ft. First, let the salsify plants grow until they produce seed heads. These seed heads will look like dandelions with white, fluffy seeds. Next, you will need to wait until the seed heads have turned brown and the seeds are fully matured. Once this has happened, cut off the seed heads and place them in a paper bag. Shake the bag vigorously to release all of the seeds from the seed heads. Then, remove any debris or chaff from the bag and store the seeds in an airtight container. Be sure to label the container with the date and type of seed so that you can easily identify it in the future. Stored properly, salsify seeds can last for several years, giving you the opportunity to plant them and enjoy this delicious and nutritious vegetable for years to come.
