Lon & others with experience in this arena:

I've tried unsuccessfully for the past 3 years or so to germinate Cornus 
mas(Corneliancherry dogwood) pits, collected from a group of trees planted 
along the Riverwalk here in town.   Have had one seedling come up - a 
volunteer, which appeared in the blueberry patch - must have dropped out of 
my pocket, or perhaps one of the kids spit it out there.

Only thing I can think of that I haven't tried yet is planting immediately 
after after collection.

Fruits are beginning to ripen now, and I'd sure like to get a few seedlings 

Any tips on on how best to handle the seeds to get some reasonable 
germination rate would be greatly appreciated.
