SEED SAVING
Seeds can be expensive, but many
vegetables make their own seeds
that can be harvested and saved.
Always select the strongest plant to
harvest seed from. Lettuce, broccoli
and carrot seeds may need to be
bagged as the seed is very ne and
will be lost.
Pumpkin,
tomato,
watermelon,
rockmelon, paw paw, chilli and
eggplant can all be grown from their
own seed.
Never store seed in plastic, always
use either glass jars or paper bags.
Mark the container with the name of
the plant, date when collected and
when to plant out.
Seed should be stored in the fridge or
an air- conditioned room.
Most seed will store for 4 years.
