Leycestra formosa Seed Propagation
Surface sow to packs of moist medium in cold frame February or March. Press in, very light cover of sand,vermiculite or soil. Erratic germination 1 month to 1 year. When seedlings are large enough to handle, prick them off to pans or boxes, later to 4” pots. Grow on under glass for one year before planting out between October and March.
Note these are Fresh Seeds & have not been stored. The secret to successful Fresh Leycestra seed germination is a short cold stratification. Sow immediately in a cold frame or unheated green house for germination in Spring.
