Harvesting Bachelor Button Seeds

Saving the seeds of Bachelor Buttons is a great way to gather seeds for next year’s garden.

Each Bachelor Button plant produces a multitude of flowers, which if fertilized, will produce many seeds.

Allow the seeds to mature on the plant, and harvest when the seeds are brown and easily fall away from the pod.

Mature Bachelor Button seed pods will be brown and dry with almost a furry centre at the top.

These annual seeds are approximately 0.5 cm in length.

I’ve always thought that the seeds look like tiny little paint brushes, with the burst of tiny bristle- like structures at their tips.
