I'm stratifying some maple trees, and others to grow for my future tree nursery, and I'm new to it. I stratified some maples by placing them in the fridge for six weeks, then they have been out for two.
My maple seeds look to be crumbling now. Should I start them without refrigeration? What should I do now, wait for the seeds another two weeks? Should I refrigerate them longer, or do a winter outdoors in a prepped spot?
I also have pecans, peaches, and fruit trees like apples, oranges, lemons, and others.
