•  Plant your seeds 

•  Enjoy the fruits, vegetables, or flowers that you have grown

How to Save Seeds

1. Grow your garden

2. Isolate the varieties you want to save seeds from 

3. Choose the best plants—strongest, tastiest, prettiest, or most productive—and let them go to seed and ripen fully

4. Optional: wet-process seeds from wet fruits, like tomatoes, by soaking the seedy pulp 2-3 days in a jar of water, then rinsing

5. Dry all seeds completely

6. Label them. Store in a sealed container in a cool dark place

7. Optional: Bring some back to the library!

Giving Seeds
