Just look at this bounty. Fall not only reveals the structural bones of your garden, but seed heads add another level of interest. All these seed heads mean hundreds of free plants for you, besides the fact that they're feeding birds and other creatures. But when can you gather the seeds?

Gather Seeds When They're Ready My rule of thumb for seed gathering over the course of late summer into fall is rather laissez-faire: When the seeds start falling off or blowing away, they're ready. (Then you really have to be on the ball, especially if it gets windy.) Here, old Liatris blooms are all puffed up, ready for the seeds to be collected.
