    Hi,

    I just have a question about the Lambsquarter seeds, will they need any cold stratification to germinate? I’m trying to do an experiment with them and I would need them to germinate this year.

    Thank you!

      Hi Sandra,
      I’m glad you brought that up. People think that seed of common weeds must be the easiest germinators, but often it is not so. I would do everything I could think of to brea the physical and chemical inhbitors that reside in the seed–scarify and stratify–in order to get reasonable results. Otherwise scatter and hope for the best-can take vernalization before germination. richo
