Starting with Seeds
- Red Maple Seeds – Seeds should be stratified in moist peat moss in the refrigerator for 30 days.
- American Hornbeam – Seeds should be stratified at room temperature in moist peat moss for 60 days and then refrigerated in moist peat moss for an additional 60 days.
- Tulip Poplar – Seeds should be stratified in bags of moist peat moss for 60-90 days in the refrigerator.
- Honey Locust – Seeds must be scarified (scratch or nick the oter layer) and then soaked in hot (almost boiling) water for 24 hours, left to cool. When the seeds become enlarged, they are ready to plant.
- Dawn Redwood – No preparation needed. Plant your seed today!
- American Sycamore – 90 day stratification period recommended, but not required. Store your seeds in moist peat moss at 41 degrees Farenheit (in the refrigerator) for 90 days to improve germination success.
