Joakim, it has also taken me two springs to see the leaf shoot above ground if planted outside. A few pages back a couple members say if planted fresh they will have a leaf in the spring. I have always waited until they turned black before planting, so that may be the reason why it takes me two springs. We will see come spring.
I have been starting them indoors, and that does work great 90% germinate. I could use that method now, high heat/moisture, and then plant out in a month. Think I'm going to try 10, after 30 days planted in the ground.
