Harvesting Morning Glory Seeds

Overview

Morning glories are beautiful flowers that grow on leafy climbing vines. Each vine is capable of growing dozens of flowers, most of which will eventually develop seed pods that contain up to seven seeds. If the seeds fall to the ground, they can grow into new plants, which can ultimately cause an overcrowded and unpleasant appearance. Harvesting the seeds will prevent overgrowth and save you money should you choose to grow new plants the following year.

Step 1

Wait for the seed pods to turn brown and dry out. When ready, they will be fragile, much like a dry leaf.

Step 2

Hold a bowl beneath the seed pod.

Step 3

Squeeze the seed pod to break it apart and let the seeds fall straight into the bowl.

Step 4

Repeat the process for the rest of the seed pods.
