- For more flowers without buying more seeds, collect seeds from zinnias and marigolds, and spread them in flower beds this fall or in the spring. For impatiens, take slips off and put them in water until roots grow. Plant in pots; then transplant them in the spring. They will likely grow bigger flowers than the previous year.
