    Nope havn't got a clue, i'd hang them upside down somewhere warm and give it ago, you have nothing to lose, but at least you will have tried .....before giving in and throwing them away lol x

    HI Mama, are you looking to dry the seed for next year?

    I have done this for several years now. I hang them in a dry airy area, usually in the car port, a nice through air in there. Put a brown paper bag over the seed head and when the stalk has died back and the seed head is nice and dry then just roll it between your hands and the seeds come away into the paper bag.

    Store in a dry place till next year.

    Regards

    Michael

    Thanks Michael, I was hoping to dry the flower heads as I have tons of seeds and did not want them to go waste. Regards Mama
