- Soak seeds 24 hrs. Follow with 60-90 days cold, moist stratification. For more information on stratification, check out our article "How To Stratify 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 soaked seeds in pots using standard potting soil or in nursery beds. 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! 

-If you're not stratifying immediately, do not let the seeds dry out. Store cool and dark.
