Sow these fresh seeds at any time of year, storing them will make them go deeply dormant. Cover with compost or grit about 5mm deep and keep moist in a cool spot or the bottom of a fridge for around 4 weeks. They germinate very slowly indeed at between 5 and 10 degrees C so watch them carefully. but they can take up to a year to appear. They WILL NOT germinate if too warm. Grow in small pots before planting out in spring into a deeply-prepared bed.
