Some seeds need to go through a stratification process before they will
grow, such as many deciduous fruit trees. This means the seeds need to
be preserved through the winter under a layer of soil or snow with a
fairly constant low temperature and some moisture. Stratification
triggers a chemical process that allows the seed to germinate. It's
basically an evolved method to survive the winter.
