Hyacinth – Storing Seed Pods

Q: I have collected seed pods from my hyacinth bean vine that I planted last spring. How should I store the seeds?

A: Now that the pods are brown and stiff you can simply pick them off the vine and let them dry for a week more indoors. This will dry the seeds inside more fully. Then gently crush the seedpod skins and extract the black seeds. Store in an envelope in dry spot until planting in April.
