best way to start tall flocks and coneflowers

I have beautiful coneflowers that my husband seeded in our pasture. Can I dig some up and move them to my yard or is it better to cut off the heads when they dry and hope that I can get some started from seeds. Also I see some wild flocks in the road ditch. Last year I tried to move one, but of course it didn't make it. How do you get the seeds from flocks?

Coneflowers don't transplant well but grow readily from seeds, as you have learned in your pasture. I think it would be easier to start with seeds next spring than try to baby a transplanted plant the rest of this year.

Look for info for phlox, not flocks. I've not grown those from seeds, but searching using the correct spelling might net some useful info.
