It's up to you, John, as to what you do. The irises have done
their thing. If the pod parent is a good named variety and I had plenty
of space, I would let the seeds mature, and plant them later. If I didn't
think much of the pod parent, I would snap off the pod and trash it. Some
of our Dykes' medalists have come from bee pods, but you know one parent.
