Propagation

Seed - best sown as soon as it is ripe in a cold frame[2]. Stored seed requires 3 months cold stratification at 5°c and should be sown as early as possible in the year[3]. Very little of the seed produced in Britain is viable[4]. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and grow them on in a greenhouse or cold frame for their first winter. Plant them out in early summer of the following year.

Cuttings of half-ripe wood, July/August in a frame[3].
