HYB:Seedlings in Australia

>I just read about Jans TB seedlings coming .......i didnt put mine in 
the fridge for any time i only gave them a little knick with a knife and 
it seemed to work really well too.

Did  you soak them first? I found the water very smelly, and presume 
this is from chemicals in the seed coat. I was happier having mine in 
the fridge as I didn't have to worry about the very dry weather and 
keeping seedlings moist. Also didn't like the idea of cut fingers and 
seeds 'flipping' around the room. How long does it take to knick say, 
100 seeds? Do you cut a slice of the tip end to expose the embryo? How 
long do they take to come up after planting? Do they come up all 
together, or over a period of time? I'd be curious to compare the 
results of both methods. My main aim is to produce a batch of seedlings 
that all come up close together (timewise)for easier handling. (latest 
count 28 - should I name them yet? ;-))
