*If you are doing the cold period in your fridge, please check on your seeds. 120 days is an estimate & they may sprout sooner.*

- Plant stratified seeds in deep pots or a nursery bed using standard potting soil. Heat mats are NOT required & can hinder germination!

- Protect young tree seedlings from slugs, cutworms & rodents. Slugs especially can eat primary leaves as soon as they come up, so be vigilant!
