    Just sow them in moist medium and they'll grow.

    ^ I've heard otherwise... but the fastest and easiest way is no strat


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I have hundreds of seedlings growing and never stratified them and always had good germination rates.

    I have had them drop seeds outside in the bog that germinate before winter when weather stays warm, so my guess is they don't need stratification.
