 At the end of the season in late fall you will notice that your Morning Glory vines have turned brown and become crisp (I actually waited until early spring to harvest my seeds).   Where the flowers once bloomed on the vine will be a cluster of about 3 or 4 pea-sized round balls (see picture above).

Pick these clusters and place them in a bowl (see picture above).  Begin by gently rolling each cluster in your hand and the pea-sized globes will open & black seeds will roll out (see both pictures below).

In the picture below you will see that the seed husks have been removed & the black seeds are large enough to pick out.

  1. Morning Glories are so pretty. We had some in our garden at the first house we owned. I saved the seeds and put them in a safe place. Then I couldn't remember where the safe place was. :)
