Saving sweet pea seeds

South Lanarkshire, United Kingdom Gb

My sweet peas have been particularly good this year so I was thinking of keeping some seeds. Is it just a case of taking the peas from the pods and drying them? If so whats the best way to dry them? Thanks.



Yes, I save seeds from year to year. Just wait until the pods are brown, then cut them off, 'pop' them and put the seeds into an envelope or a paper bag in a cool dry place until you decide to plant them - either in the autumn or spring, whichever you normally do!

i save mine too, and yes i agree with Spritz, although i dry mine on a kitchen towel in a bowl or tray on my kitchen windowsil - i find this works.
