Caper Bush (Capparis spinosa) - 10 Seeds
•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 8-11
Caper seeds are very tiny and dormant. Dried seeds are more difficult to germinate, so soak for one day in warm water and then cold stratify in the refrigerator for 2-3 months. After the cold cycle, re-soak the seed overnight before sowing at a depth of .5" in a very well draining medium. For northern growers, it's often best to start them in a large pot with a base of coarse rock or crumbled brick. Take care not to overwater as this plant's foliage is a natural water conservator. They will need sunlight to flourish and temps of -20°F or lower will kill them, so bring the pot indoors or put in a greenhouse. When transplanting, be sure to not disturb the roots as little as possible. Before moving plant outside, be sure to "harden off" for a week to allow the plant to adjust to the new environment.
