|Common name||Northern Highbush Blueberry|
|Germination||Seeds should be soak in water for 24 hrs. After soaking, pack the seeds with moist sterile material, put the mix in a closable plastic bag and cold stratify them for six weeks. Sow the seeds on the surface of an acid peat seed sowing mix at about 22°C. They normally will only germinate with light. Keep the mix humid but not too wet and don’t let it dry between watering. Germination should take about 20-30 days, but sometimes takes another 12 months. When the seedling starts to germinate prick them out and put them in a good potting soil.
|Scarification / Stratification||Cold 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.
