Propagation

Pre-soak the seed for 16 hours in alkalized water[2], or for 3 - 4 days in warm water[3], and sow late winter in a cold frame or greenhouse[2][4]. Two months cold stratification may speed up germination, so it might be better to sow the seed in early winter[4]. The germination is variable and can be slow. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and grow on the plants for at least their first winter in a greenhouse. Plant out into their permanent positions in early summer and consider giving some protection from winter cold for their first year or two outdoors[K].

Cuttings of half-ripe wood from juvenile trees, July in a frame[4].
