...very easy to germinate and need up to 6 months to
I collected fresh seed from a tree in Lincoln, England, sowed shallowly in early Sept 2003. Left in a shady
spot in cold greenhouse, germination started in about 30 days and continued in mild spells through Winter, temps
normally day around 6 to 8C + or - a little, night sometimes not much less, occasional frost, one was to -9C,
no damage! I have about 3 dozen plants still in same pot, (don't know how many sown but would say at least 50%
germination). They are getting quite strong with up to 6 leaves about 10" tall, ready to pot up in March
or later. The parent tree is green, but many seedlings have a red flush up stem and into leaves

Take polystir pot (soup pot) ,use medium (25% sand 75 %peat moss) and put the little seeds at the top cover
with just 1-2 milimetres fine sand. Keep humid at room temperature (21-25 °C) first leaf appear within 3 weeks.
