Saving Flower Seed for Custom Beauty and Resilience


Photo by Carol Norquist

As spring approaches in sunny Columbia, S.C., it is the perfect time to get your garden ready for spring. I love to have fresh flowers in my house during the spring, summer and fall, and thankfully with the beautiful weather of South Carolina, that is possible. Zinnias, Cosmos, and Mexican sunflowers are flowers that I religiously save seed from every year. I love the colors and the beauty of each variety and they easily brighten up my home in the Pinehurst Neighborhood.

Benefits of Saving Flower Seed

Land connection. The benefit of saving seeds is that it honors traditions of the land. It allows you to become an expert on seed selection and on what plant traits that you want to have year after year.

Customized beauty. You become the designer of the beauty that you want to create on your homestead, and it allows you to return to that beauty year after year.

Sustainability. By saving seeds you are also being more sustainable, allowing for the resources of your land to be resown year after year.
