Q. How do I save the dry seeds for a Lunaria (Money Plant) until next spring?

Winter in MA can be very SNOWY. I have them laying on a paper plate for now. Thank you

A.

Separate the seeds from the pod if not done already. When the seeds seem dry, 2-3 weeks, put them in a glass jar and keep them in a cool, dry place. Another drying method is to hang the flower spikes upside down for 2-3 weeks and then separate the seed. Lunaria self-sows in Michigan so the seed is hardy. When saving the seed indoors, sow outdoors in late spring and cover with a thin layer of light soil.
