Soak seeds in water for 24 hours. Seeds that float will germinate. Warm stratify the seeds for 30-60 days, then cold stratify for 60 days. After stratification is completed to break the seeds' dormancy, slow 3/8" deep and tamp down the soil. Keep moist and mulch the seed bed. Please be aware that germination can be sporadic over the course of a year.
