Harvesting Seeds from Pretty Little Dianthus

This year I had three varieties of dianthus growing in my garden: Sweet William, Spangled Star and a Neon variety.  Like the daylily, once the bloom expires a pod behind the bloom begins to swell with seeds.  Allow the pod and stem to turn brown and dry out. The little pod will usually open at the top allowing you to pour out the seeds once you’ve carefully separated them from the plant.
