What's the equivalent or alternative to instructions on perennial seed packs asking for cold frame in Spring?

Would this also imply cold soaking, stratification or not? Could I alternatively sow seeds in trays and keep refrigerated until temperature is safe? Thanks

How about winter seed sowing in a milk carton? Cheap, easy, flexible, etc.

Do you keep the plastic cap on the lid? How about holes in the sides of the jug, seems mighty damp inside mine. Thanks
