Solomon’ Seal

I have Solomon’s Seal in the bed in front of my house. It’s getting very tall and ungainly. Is there a best time/best way to trim it down?

Thank you for sending us your gardening question.

The best time to prune Solomon Seal is in the early spring. You can also divide it at this time, if desired. If you are pruning to control growth, cut back as little of the live plant as possible.

Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate Plant

How do I know when to collect the seeds?

Certified GKH Gardening Expert

It is recommended to pick seeds right before they fall off of the plant. Typically, the area around and near the seeds will start to change colors signalling that the seeds are nearing maturity. As you watch your plants more and more, you will learn what the seeds look like as they ripen. Here is an article with more information about the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/kiss-me-over-garden-gate/kiss-me-over-garden-gate.htm
