GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

- Soak Seeds 24 hrs, followed by 60 days warm moist stratification, followed by 90 days cold moist stratification. 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 is an estimate & they may sprout sooner!*

- Plant stratified seeds in pots or a nursery bed. Cover only slightly with soil as light improves germination. 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! 

*Adding soil to your site from beneath established pine trees will inoculate your soil with beneficial mycorrhizae to help ensure your thrive.*
