Last year I bought several snapdragon Montego Yellow (dwarfs: 8-10" tall). They were great plants: they flowered from spring all the way through December. I liked them so much that I collected seeds. I'm hoping that the offspring will be similar to the parent but I know that's not guaranteed.

Here's my question: should I pinch back initial growth to encourage branching? One of my plants has branched on its own. The others have not. I'm attaching a picture of them. The majority are roughly 4" tall. I still have plenty of time before the danger of frost has passed. So I'm not worried about causing them stress too close to their transplant date.
