If it were me I would let the seeds develop on the stems and depending on your style you could just wave the stem about where you would like them to grow or use a paper bag and put the stem upside down and collect them that way.

I do think it's possible to cut the stems off and then collect the seed, but I'm short on space and you have to keep them in damp free conditions

Thanks.  I was wondering whether cutting the stems before they naturally dried would stop full development of the seed, but your answer implies that that doesn't happen.  Is that right?

What's the best way to collect foxglove seeds after all flowers have fallen?  Should I let the stems die back then collect or cut the stems off and store them, then collect?

Put garlic in 09.10.11, like Monty D said; 2 varieties: Marco and Cristo. Cristo isn't showing at all, but all the Marco are up and a couple of them are 4in tall already!
