Cold Stratify Your Stone Fruit Seeds. Apocalypse Science – Grow Barrel Greenhouse

Views: 34

Today I prepared my peach seeds for cold stratification. Planting them in rich potting soil and setting them in the dark for winter dwell time.

You can do this with your fridge at home. Put your peach seeds in a large ziplock bag with well drained potting mix. The mix needs to be wet but not soaking. Place the bag in your fridge and count 90-120 days.

Little peach trees in your fridge. Take them out and plant them.

Not all seeds require stratification. The ones that do are generally those of the tree species.
