Wow ! Unbelievable ! The first thing you showed was Liatris. I have some in flower now in the UK and was planning to get more next year as the bees are loving them. I was wondering if I could collect seeds from them and now I know. Glad I caught your video. Thanks.

I would like to collect seeds from the the plants I have. I have 2 varieties of begonias with red flowers. One is indoors/outdoor and the other is full sun outdoor. I am not able to tell where the seeds are. Would really appreciate if you had any suggestions. Thanks. Great video!!

I watched a video where someone cut the dried flower head put it in an empty clean coffee can and shook the piss out of it. Seem to work good.
