•American grown seeds
•Height: 50-60 feet.
•USDA Zone: 3-9
Fall sowing in mulched bed is simpler and preferable over artificial stratification, but most growers are successful mimicking indoors what occurs naturally over the winter. Sow seeds 1-2" deep, tamp soil, and mulch the seed bed. Seeds should germinate the next following spring. This plant grows best in moist soil with full sun. Water every 7-10 days. More during drought conditions.
Starting indoors: Cold stratify the seeds for 120 days, then let stand in water for 24 hours. Fill a container with seed starting mix to about ½ inch from the top. Place your seeds 1 inch to 1 ½ inches below the soil surface. Gently water your seeds to keep moist, not soaking wet. Heat & humidity is critical for germination. Germination may occur in 1 week or as long as 3 months. Place the seed container on a heat mat under growing light(s) or in a sunny window. Keep your growing lights on 14 hours per day if you choose that method. Keep your heat mat on 24 hours per day. Once your seeds germinate, move each seed into its own container under the growing lights or a sunny area and on the heat mat. Keep your seedlings indoors for 2-3 months before transplanting outdoors in the spring. Harden off one week before moving outdoors or transplanting.
