|Common name||Giant Redwood|
|Germination||Redwood seeds do not require pretreatment to germinate, but germination speed is increased by an overnight soak in hot water. These seeds are not actually dormant, but will germinate faster if given a cold stratification for up to 9 weeks. Then sow seeds at more then 18° C. Keep compost moist but not soaking wet. Germination should occur within months but it can take longer, don't give up.
|Scarification / Stratification||This will break their dormancy. It creates a cold and moist environment for the seeds. Mixed in seeds with slightly moistened vermiculite or peat, only damp in a ziplock bag. Close zip bag shut and store it in the salad crisper compartment of your refrigerator. If any seeds begin to sprout during the cold stratification, simply remove the seed and plant.|
