Rolling the seeds down a fold in a piece of paper is a useful tecniqe,
along with judicious blowing.
Shaking the seed heads in a jar or large (paper) bag will often free a lot
of seeds to start with, especially if the head is well dried. Often I will
pick the seed head early and allow it to dry in the bag first.
