Germination of

Juniperus chinensis

Chinese Juniper: Juniperus chinensis, Eastern Red Cedar, Blue Point Juniper

Juniperus chinensis

Juniperus chinensis: Soak the seeds in water for 24 hours before planting. Sow them in a well-draining soil mix and keep them moist. The seeds should be lightly covered with soil and placed in a cool, bright location. Germination should occur in 4-6 weeks.

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.
