    I would recomend a 4-6 week period of wet stratifacation.As this will generaly improve germination.

    If they're fresh, you could plant them now without stratification.

    Yah. but if you don't know, a wet paper towle around them in a ziplock bag and in the fridge for a few weeks helps with most seeds... although VFT's aren't that northern so you could probubly toss them in a dish of water on the windowsill untill they sprout and then move them to the soil surface
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.
