Default Seed Pods on Oleander

Just putting my Oleanders in the cold greenhouse for the winter and
noticed have some green seed pods on one of them.

How do I treat the seed, i.e. when is it ripe? and how & when do I sow
them.

I thought these were poisonous?

They are!
I waited until the pods split open then sowed in a soil based compost placed
in the shade inside an unheated greenhouse, lots of germination but all
pretty boring colours and flower sizes.
