I always shake one "pepper pot" around as I cut them back, Jacque. They produce so much seed that I put it on top of my home-made rolls :-)
Your question about saving seed sent me off to check - would you believe I found packets labeled 2003, 2004 and 2007, but not this year - it must have all gone in the cooking jar!
