Amelanchier Canadensis

- Stratify seeds in the refrigerator for 2-3 months before planting. - Sow seeds ¼ inch deep in well-draining soil. - Maintain a temperature of 60-70°F (15-21°C) during germination. - Keep soil consistently moist. - Transplant seedlings outdoors in a sunny to partially shaded location after last frost.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
