Hi Soil mates Many thanks Oldboggy for your response regarding Chilean lantern seeds

Shropshire, United Kingdom Gb

Hi Soil mates, I have a Chilian Lantern tree and I am looking for advice as to how to grow from seed and how difficult? all advice gratefully welcomed, I have lots and lots of seed and have had many admirers of this shrub so thought it might be nice to let them have some seeds and they can try for themselves, Many thanks



They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
