Do ✅ Try different techniques to collect seeds. Seeds such as those from astrantia, scabiosa and pulsatilla can be stroked out of the seedhead; grass seeds can be collected by running a finger and a thumb along the stem.

I would give it a light trim and see how it goes & where it breaks from on the main stem . Once you have some lower shoots you can take it back a touch more .

It all depends on the type of Salvia as some are annual & also how well established it is. I wouldn't suggestion getting a newly planted one to double flower in the first year. Plus it all depend on how hard you cut them back. Always next year 😃

It looks like it could be a Prunus sp, which could either be a Plum or a Cherry, or even a cherry plum. The blossom and fruit will let you know for sure 😉
