Please donate to support our ‘Plants to Save the Planet’ Project. The Project is directed at enabling designers of ‘carbon farms’ and ‘food forests’: agroecosystems of perennial plants, to choose the most appropriate plants for their requirements and site conditions. We are working on a subset of plants in the PFAF database identified as having the most potential for inclusion in such designs. We are adding search terms and icons to those plants pages, and providing a range of search options aligned to categories of plants and crop yields, with Help facilities including videos. More >>>

Propagation

Seed - we have no information for this species but it is likely to require a period of cold stratification and would probably be best sown in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe. Sow stored seed in a cold frame as soon as it is received. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Division in early spring is a very effective means of increase[78]. Roots cuttings, March in a warm greenhouse[11]. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, 10 - 12cm long, July in a frame. High percentage[78].
