Do not allow the seeds to dry. Bring water to a boil for 5 minutes. Pour over seeds and let soak for 24-48 hours. Mix seeds with an equal amount of damp sand or vermiculite. Place the mixture in a sealed plastic bag. Store the bag in a refrigerator or cool storage room for 30 to 90 days. Sow seeds when there is no risk of ground frost. Or plant the seeds outdoors during the fall. Germination will occur the following spring or later on.
