Harvesting calendula seeds is an easy and economical way to save seeds for next year’s garden.

Calendula seeds are produced throughout the season, not just in late summer and early fall.

The calendula  seeds are right there on the seed head, displayed for all to see, as soon as the flower petals fall away.

As the fruit or seeds of the calendula mature on the plant, they change in color from green to brown.

When fully mature the seeds break away from the seed head, and fall into the garden.

In order for seeds to be viable, they should mature on the plant.
