you need ripe red ones. put them in a pot, some say remove the red stuff but I don't. Cover with some compost and I use grit to hold it all down and prevent algae growth. Leave it outside for the weather to do it's stuff and they will germinate in spring
Hawthorns have just the one seed in each berry.
Can you show us a photo of the seeds you have, and the plant with a closeup of it's leaves if possible?

Will the hawthorn grow for the following spring, as some sites are saying they take 18months to germinate?
Will the hawthorns grow for next spring, as some sites are saying it takes 18 months for them to germinate?
If I sow when they're ripe and fresh they generally germinate the following spring. But don't chuck them if they don't, they may come the next spring
They sow themselves in my garden. I've just dig up two and planted them in the paddock across the road along the stream. If they decide to grow they'll be great for wildlife and can get as big as they want.
Mine seed themselves. I only know how long they take from nut/berry sowings with the kids
