Re: [nafex] Stratified Apple Seed

Thomas, those "white specks" are root tips.  Let the roots erupt to perhaps 1/8 to 1/4", then plant, root down, in starter mix.  Cover only about 1/4".  Indiv. pots will be useful;  deep pot best.  Expect mildew infection when sdlgs are 2 or 3" tall -- it will stop all growth unless you control.

As an experiment and to create some standard rootstock I stratified some
Idared spple seed lest fall in the refrigerator.  The seeds are now
begining to show white specks at the tips.

My question is; what is the next step?  Should I plant them in a flat, or
individual pots, and should I use soil or seed starter mix?
