RE: Harvesting cornflower/dephinium/zinnia from newbie (Follow-Up #1)

i can tell you how to find the zinnia seeds, but that's all i'm good for i'm afraid when your zinnia heads die and turn brown check if they are ready by tugging on a petal if they come out easily, they are ready this is so simple you are going to jump for joy (at least i did!)when you pull the petals out of the head the seed is at the end of the petal they will be spade shaped (most of them)if they are hard and not green you can pinch off the petal part and you will have your seeds! when i figured this out, i soon had more zinnia seeds than you can imagine!!! these are so easy to grow and maintain! they won't all be the same size but the same basic shape after your first one you'll be a pro! hope this helps
