How Long to Cold Stratify?
I received my Elizabeth Town Hellebore seed a month ago and they have been refrigerated in moist medium a little more than four weeks. How much longer should I wait before sowing them? Should I wait until I see germination? The outdoor daytime temps here are fluctuating between the upper 50's and 70's and at night it's in the upper 30's to mid 50's. In another couple of weeks it will be even warmer. The Dudley's recommend temps in the 50's after cold treatment, and if I wait a few more weeks the night temps won't even be that cool.
