Those are neat looking! I voted for it. If you are inclined to check it out, I have an intsructable entered (a DIY custom t-shirt quilt) in "Before & After", "Sew Warm," and "Handmade Gifts". No pressure, entering my own project made me want to check out all the other contests. Good luck!
I really like this idea, because it's so much cheaper than when you buy those in store. And you can decorate them the way you want! :)But can they handle long-living plants?
Good job.The term you are looking for is cold stratification. Most trees from temperate climates require a cold period for their seeds to germinate. This prevents them from growing in the middle of the winter when they would be killed by the freezing temperatures. This works because the seeds contain enzymes that inhibit germination. They act like little cold activated clocks. After a given amount of time at the required temperature the enzyme breaks down and allows the seed to germinate. Of course this is a much simplified version of what is going on but you get the idea.
