Lithuanian Seeds arrival and Seaberry / Seabuckthorn Seedlings
The seeds arrived from Lithuania on March first. Instructions for the germanation of Seaberry / Seabuckthorn seeds are varied to say the least. The directions from OMC seeds instruct a process of stratification. This is accompished by placing them in a moist enviornment at 40 degrees for three months. Other information available suggests just planting them straight away. As I have 400 seeds and didn't want to make a mistake with all of them at once. I began by planting them in a seed starting mixture and keeping that cool for a week. I then put them along side my other plants in a warm, sunny location and hoped for the best. Ten days after the Seaberry seeds were in a warmer environment, they have begun to sprout! I will next try to eliminate the week long cold period and report the results back here. So far so good!
