I live in the land of the tagasaste!
I is from the northern hemisphere....

You can sow any time when it is not cold I think.
The people from here say that they do not sprout well without pre-treatment.
But they do not sow in pots -> direct!

They just roast them a few seconds in a dry saucepan!
(don't know how long...)
They are supposed to sprout best after fires...
I guess you can also use the boiling water treatment.

You can test, as you have a lot, and I would sow right now.
The fastest and most reliable components of any system are those that are not there. Tiny ad:
