i have had this plant for years i dont treat it very welli have dug it up each time i have moved it still self seeds everywhere it gets battered by the winds as i live next to a field so what i did last year was half the plants i cut to ground level,and the other half i cut only to around 18 inch from ground to see what would happen if anything they both came back,but found the ones i had cut to ground level were about 4 ft high the others were 6 to 8ft high and much bushier and all i do every year around sept it pull bits off and stick them in a pot and leave them outside the back door every one of them takes

a friend has given me some crocosmia which has finished flowering and where the flowers were are now like pods i assume these are the seeds so when can i take these off, and can i just sow these in pots and put them in a cold frame so can i do this with other plants as well if they have some sort of seed heads on them?
