Should I cut down my Lupin flower stem?

Hello
I've never had Lupins in my garden before, but bought one this year, and I love it!
The main flower stem is now dying back, but it appears to have seed pods on it.  If I plant them, will they produce new plants next year, or should I just cut it down.
Thanks for help in advance!

    If you cut the spent flower stems off you should get another flush of flowers (albeit slightly smaller) or you can leave some on for the seeds to ripen and then you can grow some more plants. Be aware that the colour does not always come true from those seeds.
