MrsBinWY On April 17, 2021 Seeds sown
13 (all) seeds from NARGS (donation from MK Young of Missoula, MT) Apr-21; per Ontario Rock Garden's directions for A. nana, soak 24-48 hours until seeds swell, then give them 90 days of cold, moist stratification. After the seeds had soaked for a couple hours, I realized that all but three of the achenes (?) were empty. Put the three actual seeds on a coffee filter at room temperature. If no germination in a few days, try the fridge. No germination as of 5-10-21. Try the fridge for 90 days.
