How can I gather the seeds from my mom's marigolds and mums so that we can grow more next year?
Thanks.

Pinch the dried up blossom from it's stem near the bottom of seed pod and store in paper bag until ready to sow. When you are ready to plant the seeds, gently rub the dried pod and all the seeds will freely fall open. If you have several colors of marigolds you may want to separate the colors by labeling each bag.

You can grow mums from cuttings taken from plant by the 4th of July. Just put cuttings in ground and keep them watered.
