Welcome to The Seed Basket
My blog is based on the harvesting and collection of flower seeds from my garden and from my family and friends gardens. While harvesting the seeds I found it very difficult identifying the seeds of some plants. It has also been difficult to find images of several of the flowers and their seeds together anywhere in books or on the web.
I now plan to add a few plants each week to my blog showing the flower, seed pod and their seeds together. I will be doing a lot of research in my gardening books and on the web about each plant in order to get all the facts entered as well.
I have about 200 different kinds of flower seeds harvested so this is going to take some time.
One of my goals for harvesting seeds is to get involved in seed exchanges as well as to sell them. In preparation I have started testing them to make sure they will germinate. As soon as the seedlings have their true leaf I will post the images. Hopefully these images will help some of you identify your seedlings. Please let me know what you think.
