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 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.
