I just planted some snap dragon flowers and they seem to have seeded. Will they still flower? Should I pluck off the seeds?

When the flowers begin to fade you can cut off the flowering stem to promote a second flush of growth or you can leave it alone and seeds will develop. When the seedpods are a tannish brown color it indicates the seeds are ripe. You can collect the seeds and plant them in your garden or you can allow the seeds to spill out on their own and reseed the immediate area. Either way, you'll get new snapdragon plants.
