Q. Blue Bonnets

I have waited too long to plant blue bonnet seeds. I read where you can put seed in freezer for 24 hours then soak them in water for 24 hours, then they will grow. I need to know is there a way I can plant the seed now. Thank you Debbie.

You need to treat the seeds by a method called scarification.
