Last year I was given some silver birch seed and I put them in lunch bags with compost and put them in the fridge for about 8 weeks. I then planted them in a hanging basket sized pot with a mix of compost and mulch.

They began to grow and but seem to start dying recently and they were very small, just tiny seedlings. Had them outside the whole time. Only 3 started to grow before they began dying, but have about 10 and rest have not appeared to germinate

Have not tried growing birch from seed before, does anyone have experience or know how to grow birch from seed?
