Strawberry seed cold stratification

gonene1May 9, 2014

Hi, i'd like to ask something about seed cold stratification.
I germinated lots and lots of strawberry seeds that i picked right from the fruit without cold stratification.

now i bought some strawberry seeds from a few suppliers of different verities.

i put them in a damp paper towel and after a week 3 seeds germinated, but about 100 other seeds did not, they just got swollen and got a bit darker.

now after 4 weeks still nothing.
the sellers told me that i should have cold stratify the seeds.

can i do seed cold stratification after the seeds where on a dump paper towel for a month?

A couple of days ago i put them in the fridge (as they are on the dump paper towel) hoping it would do.
can i also put them into the freezer, and do the seed cold stratification at this stage?
