Winter Aconite seeds

OK a question about these seeds if I may. I've just inspected the seed pods and some have gone from green to 'off green' and are in a star shape. The seeds are yellow to pale brown with the seed pod split at the ends. Are they ready to harvest? Never having done so with this species I'm erring on the side of caution though it looks like some seed has fallen already.

    Hi Fishy, :) yes, once the pod opens they're OK and if they're dropping, grab them. Sow them now, cold, in the usual Nut seed sowing manner.

    That’s the way, then you only need to stamp it and put it in the box😇🥰
