Additional Information

Germination

Scarification will be necessary. You will then place the seeds in hot water for a day. Plant the seeds in a well-drained mix of humus and garden soil. Water regularly. This shrub loves the sun or mid-shade and a fresh environment. Germination can take 2-4 months, maybe more, don’t get discouraged.

Scarification / Stratification

Seed coats may be so hard that they are impermeable to water. They need to be scratched or broken using a knife or sandpaper, in order to germinate. Chip the seeds with a sharp knife or make a few swipes with a sharp edged file or use sandpaper to allow moisture being more readily absorbed.
