Re: HYB: poll -germination

I do some of both.

Mother Nature's way - planted in pots outdoors in the fall. The standard date in this area is late November, but "mother nature" would plant her seeds as soon as the stalks fall over in mid to late summer (August). One pod of seeds was accidentally planted this way - I couldn't find most of the seeds. Oh well, Mother Nature doesn't usually dry, shell, and store her seeds in envelopes, so maybe those seeds will germinate too :-)

Un-natural way - used to burrito (shell, dry, toilet tank soak, wrap in damp paper towels, refrigerate in baggies), but from now on, will just put freshly collected pods just starting to split into baggies and chill for at least 3 months.
