Actaea podocarpa

Germination Tips


This species needs special care as described.


Give sown seeds several weeks @ 20°C to imbibe water (perhaps even germinate!), then expose to fluctuating outdoor winter temperatures including freezing for 3 months. Gradually increase light and temperature in spring. See

Special Care: 
seedlings must be grown at less than 20° and can overwinter at -20°, prick out while small, seed is viable for at least 6m
Most of the seeds in our Germination Guide have been offered from time to time in our annual Seed Exchange (Seedex).
