It's been well over 25 years since my mass experiment with a wide variety of species, so it's hard to remember all of the details -- but I can tell you that this was strictly a stratification test, no chipping.  I do know that spurias were included but I don't recall whether they turned out to be "spring" or "fall" germinators.

Sharon, this has been a really good tutorial on sprouting difficult seed.   A few years ago, I collected seeds (bee pods) from both my Spurias and my Lousianas.  Wrote to Mary Meek who told me that Lousianas take two years to germinate. 
I had no success with either group of seed.  This was probably due to both my inexperience and impatience. 
Does your method work with either of these?
