How long is the usual winter?  Where it gets cold is usually 3-4 months--so
that is how long the seeds should be in the freezer--
The U.S. Forest Service has machines which will 'nick 'the seeds--they use
it on the pine, fir and other kinds of seeds--which they plant and grow in
their nurseries--and they do not bother with stratification--or in and out
of the frig--
Mother Nature lets the seeds lay on the ground for several months--then
while winter is here--then they sprout in the spring--follow her schedule
and see if it works for you--CARRYL IN WESTERN Montana  ZONE 3/4
