|There's a few Northern Catalpa trees nearby that I want to harvest seeds from. The trees themselves are fully leafed out at the moment, with flowers still budding. However, there are a good ammount of leftover seed pods still hanging from last season, with seeds still inside. The pods are brown and dry. Though they are leftovers from last season, are they still ripe in terms of planting the seeds, or are they too old at this point?|

|So, I am noticing that I have not had to weed out any seedlings from our numerous catalpa trees here yet.
Which must mean they either sprout from very fresh seed, or last year's seed.
In either case, plant them and see. Worst case, you will have wasted a little time, and learn that you need the fresh seed. Best case, they grow and you are a year ahead of where you would be if you had waited.
