Is it necessary to stratify the asparagus seeds (freeze them for a couple of months) before planting as you described?

Yes, these seeds will not break dormancy without this cool period. This can be achieved with a refrigerator on the top shelf, if necessary. There is a chance that some MAY germinate, but this will not be guaranteed without stratification
