Seeds: Ideally, sow in the autumn in trays kept
outdoors so that the seeds are naturally stratified (periods of
alternating warmth and cold). At other times, sow and keep at around 22°C
for 1-2 months. Cool for 1-2
months (around 0°C) in a fridge. Then
warmer (around 10°C) for about a month.
It may be necessary to repeat this process if using the fridge
method. Germination is
inhibited by temperatures above 20°C.
