Finally signs of germination!!!
I received Elizabeth Town hellebore seeds in late March. I potted most of them up and placed them in the fridge. I left them there for two months, then moved them outside to get the second warm stage. To date these still have not shown any signs of sprouting. I kept back 12 seeds which I left in the shipping packages and placed them in the fridge. Upon checking these this weekend (June 11) I noticed that all 12 seeds have sent out a root. I quickly took these germinated seeds and planted them ir 6in pots. I hope to see seed leaves very soon!!! I am still holding out hope for the seeds that were planted right away, spent two months in the fridge, and now reside in a shaded place in my backyard awaiting germination.
