   The Mallorn Archives gives thirty references for 'freezing seeds,' mainly from
1996 and 1997. There are numerous authors, but no post from Bill 

   Seeds freeze in pots outdoors in January and February when 
temperatures may be as low as temperatures in a freezer.  I wonder 
why some people think a freezer will kill an embryo but Mother 
Nature's freeze won't.  In my experience the colder the winter the 
better the germination.
