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.

Some varieties are hybrids and although they produce seeds, they won't grow.

For marigolds: After the flower has died cut them off and let them dry out for a few weeks. Then open the dead flower and it will be filled with seeds, probably about 20-30 seeds per flower. The seeds are long (about 1/2 to 3/4 inches each) and they are black at the bottom and light brown or gold at the top. Store them in an evelope or a paper bag. Do not store seeds in plastic baggies. Just plant and barely cover the seeds with dirt in the spring and you will have gorgeous flowers. I do this every year.
