    Hi again, the flowers of my plant have withered away, and all that's left are some pods on a long stalk. What do I do to get the seeds? Do I break the pods open?

    Have the pods gone brown or black and dried up?

    If so then they are probably ready to harvest, just take off the lowest pod (this the oldest and most likely to be ripe) carefully and gently rub it between your thumb and forefinger over a piece of white paper/card. The small seeds should be clearly visible on the white background. You can do this the slow way, working up the stem and stopping if you come across a pod that hasn't ripened (paler seeds) or just cut the stem off and leave it to dry on the paper for a few hours if necessary, and rub the seeds off all in one, or just shake it gently and see if they are released.

    The bottom one is ripe, the others are either there or almost there. I usually harvest when more than half the pods are brown.

    Thks again Tamlin! I think I'll wait a while longer... but if I miss the harvesting period, will the seeds fall out by themselves?

    I prefer to collect the seeds when the whole stalk is black... I just get white, unripened seeds otherwise
