Punkey Muzzle seeds (Monkey Puzzle)

Post by khaskings » Fri Sep 25, 2009 2:54 pm

I have ~200 or so Monkey Puzzle seeds, kindly plucked from a female tree about 3-4 weeks ago. What's the best method of sowing them please?

Cheers,

Mike.

Growing Araucaria from Seeds

Hope you kept the seeds cool and moist since collection. Even just a few days in a warm dry room is enough to kill them (they're even more sensitive to drying out than acorns).

Mmmm :roll: Time will tell. About 40 were sown pretty much has the that web page suggests. The remainder have been kept 'not quite as moist as perhaps they would prefer'. They are now in a bucket of water, a sort of seed ER I suppose. I'll see how that goes.

Thanks for the link. Most useful.

Mike.
