Teach your children to save seeds! Do you have special memories as a child exploring nature? Did you have a big back yard, a favourite park or a Nan with a special garden like I did? Did you ever dissect plants, peeling away layers of bark or seed pods noticing the different shapes, colours & textures?
As a child, I can vividly remember yanking the dead seed heads of marigold bushes, the smell of the leaves, the way the foliage coloured your hands & the fun of rubbing the papery pods until the long thin seeds released.
