Last year I planted the seeds that gather at the bottom of the chili sacks .. clear plastic sacks .. of Arbol for heat and Guajillo for flavor and heavenly chili smell (if you use cumin and salt for beans) .. and they came up just like store bought seeds .. good germination.

Just keep the empty sack with the seeds and label .. in the refrigerator if you like and plant about a month or two before last frost in pots in the house. I just threw mine outside in the spring and they came up all right but late (on time) .. potting would have been quicker.

Smart!

Sometimes the same sort of store will also sell whole safflower, but I haven't checked those seeds for germination.
 
Seriously? That's what you're going with? I prefer this tiny ad:
