*Stratifying seeds helps them take up moisture, softens hard seed shells, and prepares the seed embryo for germination, length of time to stratify varies per seed type an average of 4 weeks should suffice, some seeds 2 weeks would be adequate were others need 3-4 months.
Seeds can be sown directly where they are to flower in Fall (this way they get winter stratification in the soil) or they can be started indoors (*after stratification).

Please be patient in all my years of experience shipping seeds they generally arrive in under 10 days. USPS has a habit of returning items with no cause, if this happens I will notify you with a photograph ask for address verification and re-send one more time. Items that do not arrive after 14 days will be resent one-time free of charge.
