Myrtle (Myrtus Communis) 15 seeds (#1679)

This beautiful evergreen shrub or small tree offers beauty, fragrance and drought resistance for mild-climate gardens. It is a true Mediterranean species that is native to Europe. It has been cultivated since Biblical times both as a commercial source of perfume oil and as a garden plant. In the wild it can be found on poor soils in protected locations. This makes it a fine choice for difficult sites in climates with prolonged dry spells.
In cooler climate zone this plant can be grown in pots (summer - bring outside, winter - inside).
Myrtle is a fine-branching evergreen plant. Small, pointed,glossy bright-green leaves are held on a dense, twiggy structure that lends itself to shearing. When clipped, the leaves release fragrant oils. Myrtle blooms in early summer, bearing abundant, small, white flowers with beautiful fluffy stamens. The flowers are fragrant and followed by small black berries that mature in the fall.
For the best results, plant myrtle outdoors in late spring in a well-drained, sheltered position. This gives it the best chance of establishing lots of root before winter weather sets in.
You can also grow myrtle in a container in soil-based compost. Water and feed with a potash-rich tomato food during the growing season.
The potash will encourage more flower and also harden the wood. Ease off watering from late August onwards, and then dry off almost completely before over-wintering the container. The shelter of a warm wall under the eaves of the house is a perfect place.
Approximately 10-15 seeds in 0.1g packet.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS

Myrtle it is somewhat difficult to start from seeds because the seeds are slow to germinate and slow to develop into a good size. Myrtle seeds may take two years to reach 30 cm in height.
Myrtle seeds have a hard seed coat which may impede germination. Try nicking the seed coat with sandpaper or a sharp knife and soaking in water overnight before sowing.
Bottom heat of +30C is beneficial.
Be prepared to wait 30-90 days for germination to occur. Germination rate - 60-70%.
