I have collected the seeds from a snakes head fritillia and would be grateful for any advice on whats best to do with them. Dry them out and store for next year or propegate right away maybe?



I believe in sowing any fresh seed straight away. Use a plant pot, rather than a shallow tray, fill with seed compost and sow the seed on the surface. Then cover with grit and pot the pot in a shady place. Frit. meleagris also do quite well sown directly onto the garden near to the parent plants.
