I am letting my outdoor coleus plants go to seed so that I may save them to plant outdoors next spring. I do not have room to over-winter them indoors. Does anyone know how and when to harvest the "flowers" and how to remove the seeds. Thanks!

My husband works for a man that grows over 100 varieties of coleus, I go in the summer time and help him pinch and plant for the markets every season. Its hard to grow them from seed, the best thing to do is pinch them at the top and repot into a pot of wet soil or place in a vase of water. We usually pinch off the seed pods and throw them out because they look ugly and their of no use.
