Stratifying wintergreen seeds - too late?

queuetue(5a)February 26, 2009

I've got 8 to 10 weeks left before the last spring frost, and I just received a packet of wintergreen seeds. Is it too late to start them this year?

I was planning on putting them just under the surface in shallow pans of damp starting mix, covered with saran wrap - one in the fridge and one outside in the deep cold.

Is this a good plan - and is it just too late to get started this year?

I've started seeds of Very Berry Wintergreen and found I didn't need cold stratification at all. However, you might experiment with one tray indoors and one outside to see if germination rates differ. Isn't gardening fun??

Great! My variety happens to be very berry - from Richters. How did you plant them for germination?
