tried and had no success.

Well, since birds and wild critters process them through their GI tracts, maybe there's something in that process that enhances germination - they certainly end up in a 'starter packet' of organic fertilizer. LOL
Seems like there was a NAFEX member (I'll not name any names) several years back, who was processing their own blackberry seeds in this manner - to the consternation of their spouse - in hopes of selecting some especially winter-hardy seedlings. I've not seen a 'progress report' from them as to how well, if at all, their experiment worked.
