After the seed pods form on the plant you can collect them when they have dried. Give them additional drying time on a paper plate before storing.
To aid in germination you should scratch the seed pod with a file or knife and soak in boiling water. Let the seed cool for 24 hours, then plant directly into a sunny area of the garden during the growing season.
Established Mimosa trees often self seed, and you can dig up the seedlings.
