Yes, cut the flowerheads when the seedpods are swollen but have not yet split open. Keep in a paper bag or box in a warm, dry place until they open and release the seeds. Sow in soil at 61 degrees for optimum germination, which takes about 3 weeks. It usually takes several years for them to flower. Good luck!
