Belladonna

Good afternoon all! First time poster!

i have a love of unusual plants and have been looking to grow some deadly nightshade. I've been doing the 2 weeks in the fridge to stratify and I'm now ready to plant. 

Has anyone grown this before? Should I cover with soil or leave them on top? Can't seem to find a great deal of advice online  

(PS I'm aware of the toxic nature of these plants but no children or pets will be in contact)

Many thanks in advance

    I haven't tried these yet. 2 weeks doesn't sound long if they need stratifying. I tend towards natural stratification but it's getting a bit late for that. I think I'd fridge them a bit longer unless it turns cold again. If it does get cold again I'd sow them on gritty compost, more grit on top and leave them outside
