Just wondering if they’re seeds that can be replanted or leave on the ground for nutritional purposes. Thanks for your time and knowledge!

It sounds like the seeds, and you can let them drop to increase the plants. Or collect them and plant them elsewhere in the yard. They should be planted after harvesting them, though. The fresher, the better. However, it can take up to five years to get blooms from seed.
