Don’t throw away those seeds! After a successful season of vegetable gardening, you can grow the same great produce year after year by saving and preserving the seeds. University of Maryland Community Learning Garden directors Meredith Epstein and Meg Smolinski discuss techniques to set yourself up for success, from saving the easiest of seeds like marigolds and beans to harvesting heirloom tomato seeds. Learn what to look for in a good seed, how long they stay viable, and other helpful tips.
