    In January, stratify wild apple and pear seeds. First, keep them for 4-5 hours in a solution of potassium permanganate (5 g per 60 liter of water). Pour a small layer of well-washed river sand into a wooden box (40 cm long, 15 cm wide and 20-3 cm high), then mix it with seeds (1:3), transfer it to a room with a temperature of +4...+90 degrees, Spray with water periodically. Stratification period is 100-XNUMX days.

    In November-December I plant the seeds of perennial crops for stratification. Which method to choose for this depends on the height of the snow cover at that time. 10 cm is enough, the main thing is that you can make a snowdrift out of this snow.

    I like this method: at the very bottom of the snowdrift, the seeds are slightly frozen, that is, they experience a more complete impact of winter. Then the seeds germinate more actively. In the refrigerator (at a temperature of 3-5°C), some crops do not have enough cold, while others’ seeds begin to germinate prematurely.
    Therefore, I keep dry seeds ready and wait for heavy snow. At the right time, I mix them with wet sand, transfer them to a glass jar with slits in the lid and bury them in the snow (lid up). The height of the snowdrift must be at least 50 cm.
