Ceanothus americanus (New Jersey Tea) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for gardeners who have experience with challenging seeds that require a chilling period. Sow about 1/4 inch deep in late fall to midwinter and set the pot outdoors so they can get a natural chilling period and germinate in spring. Or, provide an artificial chilling period of about 2 months. I have read that pouring boiling water over the seeds and letting them sit for about a day before sowing can encourage better germination. You could try that, if you like, but I had decent results even without it, using the winter-sowing approach: Seeds I started on December 2 began germinating on March 26, with more seedlings appearing over the next month or so. Your experience may vary.
