After that, though, your flowers should continue to bloom until the next frost.Harvest/StorageTo harvest more seeds, remember to leave a few flowers on the plant because they will self-seed.You can cut the flowers off anytime after blooming, but it's best to pick some right when the petals have opened.If you cut the blossoms on good stems when they first open, they'll last more than a week in water.
