can i collect seeds from plant and do they re-seed themselves ?

On plant Mirabilis



These don't re-seed in UK without human help and warmth (greenhouse). If the seeds are viable, then they should sprout, but sometimes 'foreign' plants don't set viable seed here. However, you can buy new seed that has been grown in warmer places and the plants will grow happily here.
