Your info talks about taking fresh seeds, soaking them and planting them. Do I need to save them over the winter, or can I plant them now in Sept.?

The method described in the article is designed for seeds that will be planted in spring. So you would store the seeds over the winter, then go through the scarification, cold stratification, and soaking procedure in the early spring, then plant them. However, it is also possible to simply plant the seeds in the ground, right out of the seedpods in the fall, and let nature take care of the cold stratification and soaking for you. They should sprout in the spring.
