Re: HYB: CULT: seeds

If the seeds are still firm, they could germinate later.  Perhaps
several years later <g>.  Some take a minimum of 3 sequential months of
chilling.  If you want faster germination, you might try a different
cross.  Some parents yield seeds that germinate with less chilling.

<There are 4 seeds that did not
                   germinate last spring but they are all still firm and
plump. I have been rotating them
                   in and out of the fridge but still nothing has
happened. Is there hope for them or
                   should I throw them out and start fresh with new

                   Any advice or comments gratefully accepted.
