    I stratify my seeds in damp paper towels with a generous sprinkling of cinnamon. When I get ready to plant the seeds, I put another generous sprinkling of cinnamon over the seeds and soil; seems to work get for me.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Glider, I stick mine in a wet paper towel inside a ziplock 'til spring. I check the paper towel occasionally and change it if starts developing mold. You can also stratify the seed and then store it dry in the fridge until spring.

    My 2 cents.
    I store mine dry in a refrigerator until about 4-6 weeks before April. Then I sow them directly on the moist media that they are going to be grown .place the pots on the floor of my coldframe. I mist them every couple of day to check for fungus and and watch for germination, In May, I up put them up in a warmer area and viola, germination happens.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    this thread has got me thinking about my stratification plan. currently I plan on setting up individual pots and putting them outside in the next month and let the stratify outside on the porch
