They do need to be in damp compost or some other medium for the chilling. If you  put them in the fridge dry it makes a very good seed storage place.

As Dave says, fresh is best. Off the plant, into the gritty compost and just leave it outside to get on with germinating which it will do the following spring. Once they've gone dormant it's a longer process.

If I was using the fridge method I think I'd have them in there longer. 

A few more plant ID's please

I'd agree with euonymus Dave, not one I know though

Are my common Laurels dead?

They're not all dead and they're too close together. Take out the dead ones and see what you've got left. They won't look so depressing with the dead ones gone. Laurels are big plants

They are incredibly noisy, stomping about all night and shouting at each other.

They smell a bit too

We try to be kind to the wildlife hollie

I've been trying to give the bats advice. They're roosting over a dormer window on the south side of the house again. It gets too hot for them and the babies don't survive
