Dry seeds are easy to collect and store. Once you have harvested the seeds, leave them on a towel in a cool, dry place for a few days to ensure they are completely dry before you store them. Place them in a sealed container—such as an envelope, a paper seed packet, or a jar—and store in a cool, dry, dark place.
