    When the seedpods are dry and beginning to open on their own.  The seeds are usually brown or black, as far as I can remember. image

    The seed pods at the bottom will start opening by themselves and you can collect at that point.  The seeds are coloured brown by the time that happens.  I find that the bottom pods are usually opening by the time the last flowers at the top drop off.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
