What to do with the seeds?


By Harli

My yard is starting to yield itself to Fall and most things are drying up. The Japanese Iris has beautiful pods and they make lovely additions to dried flower arrangements.
Can the seeds be grown inside?



Not permanently. I assume you live somewhere with cold winters ( 'yard' and 'fall' suggests USA?) in which case a porch, greenhouse or windowsill could be handy. Try germinating some of the seeds now. Soak them in cold water for 48 hours before sowing in pots. Keep them warm and they should germinate in 3 weeks or so. They may take a few years to flower.
