I have a few main questions about saving my own seed, and then what to do with it...
What I have in front of me is a coffee can containing dried flower heads of last year's Prunella Vulgaris, or self-heal plant.
I have stripped the dry buds from their stems, but these darn husks to not want to let go of the poppy-like seed.
I have heard mention of colanders and mesh strainers, but both of these escape me. Can I just plant with them and without? Will it rot the seed?
I have been pondering about using what I have now (a can of husks, innumerably still full, with a puddle of seeds at the bottom) into a seed paper/seed bomb type experiment.
I have made recycled paper once, as a childhood craft so I roughly understand that process. I have experience with neither seed paper nor bomb, however.
This year's garden is very strawbale based, with a perimeter built and covered as a glass door cold frame. These bales, once weathered and cold frame has become obsolete, will be planted with vegetables and a few choice companions.
Anyone have experience bombing bales?? This setup is also new to me, and the direct sow seeds have me intimidated.
Any advice is very greatly appreciated 🖖
