growing jacaranda from seed


By Vibeke

I visited Maderia last week and brought back some seeds from the jacaanda tree.
Do I just put them in a pot with soil that i normally use for cultivating seeds, or do the seeds need to have to have a resting period? Do they need much water or do they need to dry out?

On plant Jacaranda mimosifolia



I've grown them before and they make very attractive but tender small trees; don't expect them to flower in the UK.
I set several at a time in seed compost in a propagator or warm place at 25C or so, just covering the seed with compost. When they have a couple of seed leaves, transplant them into pots.

I bought some seed back from Spain last year, but didn't even get them to germinate. I live in Cornwall, so was just hoping.

Last year I just planted seeds shallowly in av potting compost,ended up with quite high germination%.Now have a 2ft,and20cm(approx) plant.Also gave another to next door.Dont give up
Will be putting small one on ebay very soon,if interested.Lynn
