Hi,
I'm sure this has been gone over before but I have never done it.
About 2 months ago I started rose Parade Red & White Impatiens in the house and they are doing very well. Almost time to plant them.
These seeds were quite expensive so I would like to get some seeds from these plants this summer and use them next spring to start plants again, but I don't know how to do it.
Can anyone give me information on when durning the summer I can get these seeds and how to do it?
Thanks,
Dennis


Dennis

Dennis, you might want to do some research and make sure that these aren't a sterile hybrid. Some plants won't come true to seed--meaning that they might not look/smell/grow like the plant that they came from.

You'll want to watch the plant until after the blooms fade. In place of the blossoms, you should be able too see some sort of seedpod. Wait until it dries out and you should be able to collect some seeds. I know several varieties to reseed profusely. I hope that you have one of them!
