Or rosehip wine but it wasn't that great. Like rosehip syrup for adults.

I'd say that was Heliopsis helianthoides.

False sunflower seems to be any yellow daisy flower

Trees from seed

Pots are better than trays, some trees create a  longish root before you want to be pricking them out. That's best done as things get a bit warmer, otherwise they might rot.

My feeling is that exposure to all weather is part of the process. However, some trees will germinate whatever you do or don't do. This may be one of them

A lot of people fail with tree/shrub seeds because they do too much, or try and be kind to them.

The fridge is an alternative to standing them out for the winter. I think outside is better. Fridge temperature is above freezing point, outside is often lower than that. Variable temperature is what happens in nature. Plants evolve to survive the climate they're in
