Plants Seeds

How closely do the plants that grow from parent seeds resemble those of the parent?

If you save the plant seeds from a previous season and use them next spring, how closely do the plants that grow from these seeds resemble those of the parents?

It depends on what species of plant you're dealing with. Many types of non-hybrid garden flowers and herbs, including cosmos, calendula, cilantro, etc. breed true to type and are easy to save seed from.

Tomatoes are fairly easy to save seeds from as well, as long as you follow a few precautions.

Seeds saved from hybrid parents may not resemble their parents very closely at all and, in fact, will be extremely diverse in their characteristics.

Here's a link to an interesting article about breeding your own "garden variety" of tomatoes. It explains a little bit about how plant characteristics are passed down from generation to generation.
