persimmon seeds not germinating
I seeded 30 persimmon seeds on February 20 in pots in the house, and they still haven't pushed any growth up, so I dug some seeds up this morning and they're not doing anything below the surface either. They look exactly like when I planted them. I don't know exactly when I put the seeds in the fridge, but it was probably early November, maybe even October, so I figured it had been 90 days as of Feb 20. I had them in a jar with damp sphagnum peat moss. Is it possible I didn't give them enough cold stratification? Surely it's warm enough in my house, right? Why aren't they doing anything? I have plenty more seeds still in the fridge. I can easily add some more seeds to the pots that will have had an additional 45 days in the fridge, but I'd like to have some reason to hope that that will solve the problem.
