Propagation

Seed - we have no information on this species but suggest sowing it in pots in a cold frame in the spring or when ripe in the autumn. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in early summer. If larger quantities of seed are available then an outdoor sowing in situ could be tried.
