    Shagbark Hickory Nut Stratification Questions

    I have about a dozen Shagbark Hickory nuts in the fridge that I'm getting ready to plant. I've never done this before so I'm wondering if these need to be out of the fridge a few days before planting or can they go straight into the pot/ground?

    From what I've read it's best to try and get them to sprout by putting them in peat moss instead of a potting mix but there is no nutrition in peat moss. Is peat moss really the best or should it be a mix of top soil and peat moss? If I use straight peat moss should a fertilizer of some kind be used to provide a nutrients source?

    Also, from what I've read they only need to covered with as much soil as the thickness of the nut. Is this accurate?

    Is there anything else I should be aware of during this process or other tips to keep in mind?

    Thanks!

    RE: Shagbark Hickory Nut Stratification Questions

    You'll probably have good luck just preparing the area where you will plant them with a little topsoil about the depth of a half to 1 inch. Nuts have a decent size embroy so I'd pass on the fertilizer. It might take 2 seasons to germinate even with cold stratifcation.
