  • Stratification Requirement

    Stratification Requirement: Fresh seed (not dried) does not require a pre-treatment. Fresh seed which has been dried DOES REQUIRE a pre-treatment of up to 30 days cold stratification. We collect the seed fresh and then dry the seed - so we recomend you cold stratify the seed prior to Spring sowing. Germination rates will improve greatly if you stratify the seed. Stored seed also requires a pre-treatment. We recomend 30 days cold moist stratification. In storage the seed seems to develop a hard seed coat or a secondary dormancy and the recomended pre-treatment will increase speed and uniformity as well as % of germination.
