The seeds on this page must be cold stratified, we recommend using the Seedman Cold Stratification Kit
for the best results. This is how we germinate these seeds in our own greenhouses. We find we receive significantly better
germination results when we use our cold stratification media over other types, plus it is very simple and easy to use.
