I was wondering if it is safe to plant seeds when there has been no rain for about 2 weeks in Pa.? The soil is dry. Thank you.

If the seeds are Stratified Seeds it would not be safe to plant if the soil is dry. I've had the best luck with planting just after a good rain and just as the Fall leaves are starting to fall so that they stay covered and moist.

Thank you, classicfur. How should I keep my stratified seeds until ready to plant?

Thynose

Your seeds should be kept in a ziplock bag with several tiny holes poked through the bag to alow air in, and moisture out. Store them in the bottom drawer of your fridg.

The seeds should have a very slight moisture to them. If they are too wet, they will start to mold.
Note: Do not allow them to freeze or the germination cycle will be messed up.

Classicfur,
Thank you for your advice. It finally rained very little in my area in Pa. I would say, 1/8 in. of rain. It has been down in the late 47 degree temperature at night. Is it safe to plant under those conditions? I want to do this before hunting season comes in.

Dig down into the soil an inch or so. If its dry I would hold off planting.

I thought you were a little better off holding off planting til a little later in the fall? When it's cooler and the leaves start falling.
