First of all, I have to write that I'm new of this forum.I imported some seed from China that aren't available or cultivated in our country.I'm posting here after wasting a lot of time online because I didn't quite understand how stratification is really done. I want to know how I can stratify the following seeds :
Rose seeds (Green and Black Roses)
Pinus seeds (Bonsai)
Boston Ivy seeds
Cycas Revolta seeds
I'm told that there are two types of stratification, Cold and Hot stratifications, which one should I use for the above mentioned seeds.
Pakistan has are four seasons: a cool, dry winter from December through February; a hot, dry spring from March through May; the summer rainy season, or southwest monsoon period, from June through September; and the retreating monsoon period of October and November.
So Now, I want to know how i can stratify these seeds and what materials should I use for the process in the refrigarator.
Also, if you can recommend a site that can tell me about the growing and planting seasons of these above mentioned seeds because I am confused, thanks to a mixture of confusing websites I visited. I'm not sure about the seasons.
