GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Soak seeds for 24 hours, drain and stratify.
2. Place the seeds and store in a cool (ideally +1-+3C; not freezing) and moist environment for a period of 40-60 days.
To accomplish this you merely place the seeds in a sealed plastic bag with moistened vermiculite (or sand or even a moistened paper towel) and refrigerate it. Use three times the amount of vermiculite as seeds. It is important to only slightly dampen the vermiculite, as excessive moisture can cause the seeds to grow mouldy in the bag.
3. After undergoing the recommended period of stratification, the seeds are ready to be removed and sown in the nursery bed for germination. Alternatively, the seed may be sown in small pots filled with moist soil and then the whole thing enclosed inside a plastic bag before placing inside a common refrigerator.
When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the cold frame for their first winter.
