    For plants with big/long seed heads such as lettuce or amaranth I use a light pillowcase or muslin bag to collect them and leave them somewhere dry for awhile. Holding the top closed, shake it up and then you can just scoop out the seeds from the bottom of the bag. I sometimes use a mesh laundry bag inside another bag so the seeds can fall through the holes into the second bag for easy collection.

    I was very sick last year after I planted Nastursiums, but they stayed pretty until the heat of summer set in and they all died. This year they are already thick in the area they were in last year, so I guess that’s just another way to save seeds! I used to do that with Allysum as a ground cover in the rose bed.
