I am interested in this discussion because I have about 20 huge pods from crosses that I really want, and I know I'm not going to be able to plant them next spring because of lack of space.  The guest irises will leave during the summer giving me plenty of room for seedlings.  I plan to dry the seed as usual, then soak them in early spring, refrigerate them during the summer and plant them in Sept. or Oct. at the time of  my regular planting.  I think with a row cover to protect them from our light freezes, they will make it through the winter ok.  I don't want to lose a year of my hybridizing.

  Nice experiment. Keep us posted. One year I put planted seed flats (8-
  10 pots per flat), about 6 flats in the fridge in the spring. The 
  seeds had been planted late and hadn't germinated in the spring. I 
  put them in the fridge in spring and left them. In the fall I noted 
  seeds germinating. I had good germination and they were still in the 
  fridge. They spent the winter under light on a light table.
