Chinese Juniper (Juniperus Chinensis) 20 seeds (#84)

Chinese juniper is a variable evergreen tree or shrub native to China and Japan. The needle-like or scale-like leaves are green to blue-green and usually hold their color in winter. The small, berry-like fruit (on female plants) ripens from whitish blue to dark brown. Chinese juniper prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Many of its cultivars are common in gardens, where they are used for screening, windbreaks and hedging.
Succeeds in most soils if they are well drained, preferring a neutral or slightly alkaline soil. Succeeds in chalky soils. Established plants are drought tolerant, succeeding in hot dry positions. A slow growing and rather short-lived tree. The plants produce new growth from early May to the end of August and can make 50cm a year increases in height when young.
A very ornamental plant, there are many named varieties. The crushed foliage has a rather sour resinous scent. Trees are usually dioecious but occasional monoecious trees occur. Male and female flowers are required if fruit and seed is to be produced.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Place your juniper seeds in a plastic container of water and leave them to soak for at least 12 hours.
2. Mix with moist vermiculite or clean sand and place into the ziplock bag.
3. Keep the bag at a temperature of +2-+4C (39F) for 3 months and then transfer them to a room with a temperature of +20C (70F). This process is termed stratification and the seeds will begin to germinate at this warmer temperature.
4. Keep the seedlings in a shaded area for the first year of their lives. (Info source: eHow.com)
