    1) Place the seeds in live spaghnum moss
    2) Place the seeds in the fridge for about 4 weeks (1 month)
    3) Take them out and place them in a bright location.

    Germination may take within a couple of days to a month or so. Hope this helps.

    Live sphagnum isn't crucial. It helps ward off fungus pretty good though. You can get just as good of results if you used dried long-fibered sphagnum. I got nearly 100% germination this year using it (except for those dang s. purpurea montana seeds - I don't think i got 'em cold enough). Anyway, if you go with the dried sphagnum, just make sure to give it a little fungicide before you stratify them. Then, like eplants02 said, put them in a warm, sunny spot and they'll be sprouting before you know it.
