Hesperocallis seeds

  When I collected seed in ~April years ago, it waited in the envelope on my shelf until the following Fall when I sowed the seeds. I got very good germination.

Hi everyone,

I just received by BX package including seeds of H. undulata. Thank you Luminita and also Leo for donating the seeds! My question is should I save these until fall before germinating? This seems like the right thing to do given that they are winter growing but I am not sure how long the seeds will last? Is it safe to store them in the refrigerator? This is what I typically do with seeds that I am waiting to germinate, but I’m a little unsure about these given that it sounds like a lot of people had
trouble growing them. Any advice would be much appreciated.
