|Common name||Japanese Honeysuckle|
|Germination||Once the Lonicera japonica seeds are stratified, plant them in a peaty soil mixture. Seeds are generally sown on the surface of the soil and covered with 1/8-inch layer of peat moss. Planting distance is unimportant at this point because the seedlings will be transplanted before they become too large and begin to crowd one another. The medium must be kept moist at all times during germination. Plastic wrap over the planting container acts like a mini-greenhouse, keeping the soil moist and the environment warm.|
|Scarification / Stratification||The seeds require cold, moist stratification to break dormancy. Envelop the seeds in a handful of moist sphagnum peat moss or sand. The bundle is then placed in a plastic bag, sealed and placed in the refrigerator for 60 days.|
