Stratification of seeds

Hi I’m after advise on stratification of seeds can anyone share successes failures etc I have almond trees and I think when I harvest a few to set for seeds this is something I need to do but after browsing there are very different advice out there so wanted to come to the professionals to give me the best chance of success as I would like to germinate about fifty seeds thank you and look forward to any input you can share and also is this something that works with different types of plants to as I have small pomegranate that has split fruit so was going to harvest seed for that too
Stratification is to break the tough seed coating. I used it to germinate some snail vine seeds which again worked well. Some plants need a spell of cold to kick start them into growing. I would think the RHS site would be helpful.
