For those of us with very limited means and requirements, a few little mesh bags to secure over two or three flowers before they open ought to be enough to ensure you can harvest some true seeds without needing to cocoon everything.

 

Obviously not going to help if you're trying to produce large volumes of dependable seeds, but it's a low-effort way to keep your personal stocks up.

You can get a whole bolt 54"x40 yards of Tulle fabric from walyworld for $13.00. Add in $7 for a hot glue gun and some sticks and you can make dozens of bags in any size you want for $20.
This is what I did.
Cut to desired length, fold over the seams and glue them together.
Work on an old scrapwood tabletop so you don't get glue stuck to everything.

That's a great idea. I have a few bolts I picked up when a local craft place went under.. Wonder if you could use the sealer attachment for a heat scribe to do that.. I've tried making fabric pots with it, but I have to figure out a way to bring the temperature down a little.

The plastic tulle does melt pretty easily. It would be a great way to make these. Let me know how it goes.

^ This, x 1,000. So simple and easy, plus you don't have to gamble on hoping to get your desired pod shape (for seed saving) on one single branch. I used Gorilla Tape and staples on the seams, and had no issues all season long. I bungeed the bottom of the nets to the tops of the buckets

Tulle netting is pretty flexible too, lol. It'll definitely stretch :)
