I planted wild milkweed pods this spring. The plants have grown, but I do not think they will flower or seed. How can I save them for next year?

Most milkweeds are perennial, and some will spread underground, so they will surely come back next year unless they are in an environment that is unsuitable for them. Many milkweeds don't flower until their second year, so what you're observing is probably normal and you will see flowers next year.
