Cherry Plum (Prunus Cerasifera / Myrobalana) 10 seeds (#75)

An ancient hybrid escaped from gardens, cherry plum is a small, rounded deciduous tree found throughout southern Europe and southwestern Asia. In spring, it covers itself with white or light pink flowers.
This heat-tolerant plum needs well-drained but moist soil and full sun. Being small it is useful for home gardens. The dark foliage of the purple-leaved forms make them valuable as a landscape feature or foil. This tree may be trained as a flowering hedge, sheared after flowering. (source: learn2grow.com)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Soak the seeds in a bowl of cool water overnight. Lay the seeds on a flat surface to dry for several hours.
2. Stratify seeds in a plastic bag full of moist sand inside the refrigerator for 60 days. Keep the sand barely moist during the cold stratification period.
3. Sow the seeds the following spring once outdoor temperatures rise above +18C (65F) during the day and +8C (48F) at night. Or sow indoors in the propagator or pots
4. Prepare a pot for each seed. Fill with clean soil. Sow one seed in each pot at a depth of 2-3 cm (1").
5. Water the seeds to a depth of ~8-10 cm (~3") after planting them. Maintain moisture at this depth during the germination process.
6. Place the pots outdoors in a sheltered spot where they will be exposed to direct sun in the morning and afternoon. Protect the seeds from direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day since the soil will warm too quickly and dry out.
7. Watch for sprouting one month after sowing. Maintain the same light and moisture conditions provided to the seeds during germination until they grow to 10 cm (4") in height. (info source: eHow.com)
