Q.Strawberry Seed Stratification

Zone Minneapolis, MN | Anonymous added on June 11, 2021 | Answered

Just received seeds for strawberries (and multiple berry plants) that need stratification (three weeks?). Since it will be extremely late in the season to start growing once that is done, would it be best to wait until first part of next year to do this??

Yes, you can hold them till next January. Start the stratification then for a month, then plant seeds indoors in February. Make sure your seeds are of the heirloom variety. Hybrid seeds won't grow true to form from seeds.
