Q.My Flowering Almond seeds

Zone 67301 | LBrown55 added on May 21, 2018 | Answered

Hello I am stratifying my Flowering Almond Tree Seeds. I read where they need to stratify for 60-90 days. I live in Zone 6b & in 90 days it will be the end of August, first of September. Can I plant my seeds in the fall then or should I plant them in a container & keep them in the house till spring & then transplant them outside?
Thank you so much for your help.

The easiest way to stratify will be to place in the refrigerator for the needed period. After this, you can plant in container. It is best to wait until after the first year to transplant outside.
