I am having excellent results with your Norway Spruce seeds. I followed
your instructions exactly and found sprouting seeds within a very short time. Many, many have risen out of the planting medium and are discarding their seed shells already. I am at fault for not timing the
duration from planting to sprouting, although it was unexpectedly short!
The Scots Pine seeds I ordered are currently undergoing stratification.
I will likely be ordering more of the Norway Spruce eventually. My objective for these trees is to convince the folks in this small environmentally conscious college town to join me in efforts to support a sustainable urban forest. I am off to a good start! Many thanks for your products and service.
