Hellebore Seeds Treatment for Winter Trading?
Hi, I would like to try harvesting the seeds from my hellebores next summer for seed trading the following winter. I'd like to be able to send hellebore seeds that would germinate in the spring after wintersowing them, but hellebore seeds seem to require a warm/cold/warm cycle instead of just a cold/warm cycle.
is there any way to bring hellebore seeds through their first warm cycle without planting them? Or, will I have to plant the seeds in the summer and then dig them up again in the fall for trading?
The reason why I want to trade seeds in winter is that most other (non-hellebore) types of seeds are are not available until fall or winter.
Is it even possible/feasable to try doing this?
