Hi Bijan,

Welcome to The Helpful Gardener. Your experiment sounds interesting. I do not know of any seeds that will grow or sprout while they are frozen. Many seeds need to go through a process called stratification which means they need a period of cold and then warmth before sprouting. The list would be too long to list here. You could do some reading here.

Are you a university student Bjahn? Or do you have access to a university library?

If you are not a university student have you taken Biology in highschool?
