Well, I finally got my stratified seeds planted in pots a couple of days ago. Anyone know how long it takes before they come up? I have been keeping the soil damp, but not sure if they should be in the sun or shaded so as to not dry out. Any advice would be appreciated.

The last time I did this, I planted in the fall and left pot outside all winter.

I would keep them in partial shade. My nursey only gets about 3 hours of day of direct sun otherwise it is in shade.

When do they come up?
When they want to is probabaly the best answer
