GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

- Soak Seeds 24 hrs. Follow with 120 days warm, moist stratification, followed by 90 days cold, moist stratification. For best results, plant out in late Spring for germination the following Spring. For more information on stratification, check out our article "How To Start Your Tree Seeds".

*If you are doing the cold period in your fridge, please check on your seeds. 90 days is an estimate & they may sprout sooner.*

- Plant stratified seeds in pots or a nursery bed using standard potting soil. Heat mats are NOT required & can hinder germination!

- Protect young tree seedlings from slugs, cutworms & rodents. Slugs especially can eat primary leaves as soon as they come up, so be vigilant!
