Eventually the pods will begin to dry out and the vents at the top of the pods will open when the seeds are ripe, ready to release the seed. The pods can be cut off to harvest the seeds or the plants can be left standing in the garden to self-sow for next year. If seeding is not desired, simply deadhead spent flowers before pods are formed.
