    Is stratification necessary for VFT seeds? Savage Garden doesn't say it's needed, but yet specifically mentions its need for Sarrs. If yes, how long should stratification be? Thanks!

    Yes, they do need stratification. I stratify them in the fridge for about 4-5 weeks.

    Hope this helps,

    whats stratification?
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Stratification in the case of the VFT is a cold, damp period that allows the germination inhibitors in the seeds to leech out, thus allowing the seeds to germinate.
