If you let the pods drop and they split, the seed may germinate in the next few weeks. Best to collect the dried pods before they fall and collect/store the seed for when you want to use them. Keep in mind, seed will not germinate true to type if the parent plant is a hybrid.

Broccoli seeds need to be planted very shallow to germinate - 2-3 times their diameter. Very hard to control that if you leave on the ground, Are the plants heirloom or hybrid. Hybrid don't grow true to type.
