I read somewhere that some seeds need stratification before being started indoors. How can I find out which seeds?

The seeds most likely to need stratification (cold treatment) are from native and woody plants, seeds with hard coats, or thick-walled seeds. Hybrids don't usually need stratification, and the most commonly planted flower and vegetable seeds don't require the treatment.
