Cut off the flower spikes as the seed capsules turn brown.
Shake the capsules and catch the seed that falls. Make sure your hands are dry to stop the seed sticking.
Sprinkle the seed evenly over the compost. The seeds need light to germinate, so leave them uncovered.
Sow the seed as soon as you collect it, so that it's fresh and seedlings are well-developed before winter. Sow in pots of pre-watered seed-sowing compost and keep the pots in a cold frame.
