Before ‘vernalization’ by rhoing

Before ‘vernalization’

The seeds I harvested from three Butterfly Milkweed plants (Asclepias tuberosa).
They will get put in a zip-lock bag and then the kitchen freezer for “vernalization.”

Looking back
  1 year ago: “Another beautiful fall day”
 2 years ago: “Tile setting artifacts”
 3 years ago: “Cabbage White”
 4 years ago: “Every project…”
 5 years ago: No post
 6 years ago: “Clematis virginiana (Woodbine, Virgin's Bower)”
 7 years ago: “Leaf ‘venation’ detail”
 8 years ago: “Three-leafed clover”
 9 years ago: “Deep in thought?”
10 years ago: “Pretty or Creepy?”

Great photo! I had to "Google" to find the meaning. How long do you leave them in the freezer? Would love to see the results!

I like the texture and lovely brown tones!

@thewatersphotos In the freezer until planting. I have taken them out of the freezer, have put some in a container of rainwater to encourage them to sprout and will be planting some in a bed where I ripped out an ugly shrub last weekend. The work never ends!

@thewatersphotos A few weeks ago, I planted a few dozen in a square where I ripped out an ugly shrub. I have little "baby milkweeds" coming up now. I'm embarrassingly excited!

@rhoing That is so cool! Can't wait to see how they turn out!
