I'm not a gardener but think I just got bit by the bug. Where I am staying in New Mexico, there are geraniums creeping over the stone walls. Purple flowers, hairy stems, the leaves look like all the photos I've seen, but I can't definitely ID them. Anyway, the flowers are drying out and the centers are what I believe to be seeds, looking like banana slices in a ring. Can I take these "seeds" and plant them to take my own plants with me back to California? If so, is there a process I have to go through? IE - refrigerating them? How do I plant them afterwards and when and how do I care for them as they grow?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

unfortunately the seeds have already sprung. The 'banana slices' are the catapults used by Geraniums to spread their seeds.
