Laurustinus (Viburnum Tinus) 10 seeds (#547)

Viburnum tinus is an evergreen shrub that is easy to grow and adds interest to the garden all year round. It is a native of the Mediterranean.
Growing Viburnum tinus will bring yearlong color to the garden. They bloom in late winter through to spring, carry blue fruits throughout the spring, and have attractive evergreen leaves all year long.
It is great for hedging and screening purposes, and can look good in an informal, coastal, or cottage garden, and even as a background or wall-side border plant. As it is low maintenance, grows well in most light conditions, and is a medium drought tolerant plant it is a relatively easy to grow garden plant. It is also a nice plant to grow if you want to attract butterflies to your garden.
Viburnum typically blooms with fragrant flowers from mid-winter to early spring. Flowers pinkish-white.
Performs well in full sunlight and partial shade; can grow in shaded areas. Can be grown in sheltered or exposed areas.
Soil should be moist with good drainage. Ideally, soil should be humus rich, fairly fertile and, nematode-free. Laurustinus will tolerate slightly alkaline to acidic soils, and will survive in poorer soils.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Soak seeds in very warm water for 24 hours.
2. Sow seeds so they are just covered or nestled among soil particles in a seed tray. Use a peat-based potting mix that drains well and remains moist. Or, incorporate sand into the peat mix to create a moist, well-draining, fine-particle soil.
3. Place the seedling tray in a brightly lit (not baking in direct sun) garden location, greenhouse or indoor room where the temperature hovers around +20C for a period of three months. Keep the soil moist, but never wet/soggy. This is a "warm season stratification".
4. Relocate the seedling tray to the cold frame outdoors (or a refrigerator) where the temperature hovers around +2-+4C for three months. Keep the soil barely moist.
5. Remove from the cold stratification area and again place the seedling tray into a warm, bright location where the temperature is around +18-+20C degrees. Keep the tray exposed to this warm environment for three to six months. Look for any germinating seeds. If none is seen, repeat the process again. (information source: eHow.com).
