    In the natural world seeds fall to the ground immediately at maturity so it figures that the best time to plant is as soon as the seeds have left the pod.

    Good answer.  However, I hold mine for about a month and plant them.  Other then this past winter, I see new seedling coming out of the ground by Christmas.

    I usually plant in July but this year I planted them last week. I water them once and then let them dry out and start watering in late September or October depending on how hot the weather is. They need cool weather to start germinating.

    I got mine planted this in Late August.  Two years ago it was Nov.  Most took another year to germinate when planted this late.

    Anybody interested in my OP seeds?  I’ve decided to concentrate on my known crosses.  Send me a request to  title= and I be glad to mail you some seeds to get started.
