My attempt at collecting broccolini seeds a couple of weeks back came undone when I compared my collection with the original seeds I had bought. This time, I think I may have got it right, or at least I'm closer to it!
The stalks started growing pods! It dawned on me to check if anything was inside... Ah ha! I have a very real chance that these are broccolini seeds. Shape. Check. Size. Check. Consistency. Check. Colour. Not so much, but I'm hoping that will change once they dry.
I've progressed. Now I have to work out how to dry them. Do I leave the pods on the plant? Do I dry the pods? Do I dry the individual seeds? I have no idea so I'm going to experiement with all of the above. I still have seeds for planting should I fail. Any advice or experience would be most definately welcome =)
