Collecting Flower Seeds

I am looking for a book with information on how to collect flower seeds. I need basic information on what flowers I can collect seeds from and how to collect and store them.

Keep in mind that all flowers will not come true from seed. Hybrids and those pollinated by the wind or insects may produce offspring unlike the parent plant. But for many gardeners the surprise offspring add to the fun. Use heirloom or older varieties for consistency from one generation to the next. The International Seed Saving Institute’s website seedsave.org has lots of useful information on collecting and storing seeds. Check out these books and see what best meets your needs: Saving Seeds, a Gardener’s Guide to Growing and Saving Vegetable and Flower Seeds by Marc Rogers; Saving Seeds, Seed Sowing and Saving by Carole Turner and Basic Seed Saving by Bill McDorman.
