Sowing Advice

Soak Kolreuteria seed in hot tap water (scarify) and let stand in water for 24 hours. Place seed on damp paper towel and place in a zip lock bag in the fridge at 4 degrees C for 90 days ( stratification).Sow seed in well prepared sandy loam seed bed  outdoors to a depth of 1ml. Tamp the soil lightly and mulch the seed bed.  Sporadic germination will occur over a 2-3 year period. Autumn sowing of seed in mulched seed beds is preferred to artificial stratification. Plant out the following winter once large enough to transplant.
