Maybe this was addressed in another post but I didn't see it. When I have tried to use QAL as a cut flower it dropped seeds all over the place making a terrible mess. Is there a way to avoid this problem?

Hmmm. Hair spray, or some kind of fixative? Picking it at a less open stage? I never really paid attention to that. (Now you know what kind of a housekeeper I am!) I'll bet you mean petals not seeds, right, or do you literally mean seeds?

Thanks for commenting - I'm intrigued, now.

Small black specks. I would think that has to be seeds. (At least I hope it was seeds & not some kind of worm castings. Ewwww! I had that happen once. There was a tiny inchworm on one of my flowers making a mess. Now I always put my flowers to soak in a sink full of water for a while before I put them in a vase to force out any stowaways.)

Ewwww. I don't know what to say; I am so sorry. Except again, maybe younger flowers.
