Half Price Seed Sale
It is not too late to order native seeds for those species that require no cold pretreatment. These seeds are often tiny things that we sow on the surface of a pot of seed-sedstarting mix and give moisture and warmth.
Many species in the Pea Family germinate well with hot water soaking to soften the hard seed coat, followed by a brief 10 -14 day cold-moist stratification, which you can easuly give them in a Ziplock baggie in the fridge. After the cold period, sow, bring into warmth and they often germinate very readily.
I also have two uncommon and highly desirable species of clematis, for which even the March Seedy Saturdays are too late, These clematis seeds want a period of warm-moist treatment to finish ripening the seeds, before they experience winter (cold-moist). If you get them now — and mark your calendar carefully — you will have them on hand to start conditioning them in the fall.
