Bored to death with the limited plant selection in most nurseries in Puerto Rico, some time ago I started collecting seeds of anything that may be interesting in my terrace garden. During my walks around the city,
I observe carefully, vines, bushes, plants that grow wild, often in abandoned spaces, in which they self seed. I do not care about their identification anymore. What is relevant is their flower, leave texture, size and drought, sun, marine breeze tolerance. Collecting seeds as you have written is one of my favorite aspects of practicing serious horticulture. Thanks for sharing it.

I'm glad you enjoyed the article!

I just got back from a weekend trip... discovered seeds in my purse pocket as I was packing... I think they're Gaillardia, collected last fall. LOL
