    Doing it now will give the seed stratification, but watch out for rain washing the seed out or covering it over. Perhaps covering it with LFS or live sphagnum may help, or even a cloth "tent" can help.

    Good luck!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Good warning there and because of it I would suggest you strat the seed in your fridge and sow into the bog next season.

    Put the seeds in a plastic bag or container of water, in the fridge, for about a month and a half, before sowing.
