Seeds were picked last summer when pods started to split. Then stored in the house in coin envelopes till late March of the next year. They then were planted outside in gallon pot per cross. No soaking or chilling. That is other than what mother nature did.

Germination was fine. Nine crosses. Two had only two seedlings the others had 60%+.

I live in SW Ohio. I get 60% to 80% first year bloom. Why bother with all this burrito stuff? How many have a place to grow seedlings in the winter? To me a window sill sun would only stunt a plant. I have had rebloomer SDBs bloom in the fall they germinated.
