Cold stratification is recommended. YouTube Cold Stratification Video
Cold treatment may not be critical for germination to occur in colder regions but should give increased germination rates.
This can be replicated by cold stratification in the refrigerator for 6-8 weeks. Alternatively overwintering in the garden in cold climates will assist germination.
Overwintering in the garden in cold climates:
General note: Seeds of many plants are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Please do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
