You may be wondering how a seed library works. Here’s the idea: You borrow from a selection of vegetable and flower seeds available in our seed libraries, plant them in your garden, and watch them grow. When it’s time to harvest, let a plant or two go to seed and bring some back to the library for the next round of gardeners to enjoy.
Not sure how to collect seeds from a plant. You can take a look at Complete Guide to Preserving Your Own Seeds for Your Garden: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simply by Katharine Murphy, available as downloadable PDF chapters from our digital resource Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center.
