Bob/Chris: It s my experience that most seeds of deciduous azaleas will tend to show good germination within 3 weeks after sowing, in a high humidityMessage 1 of 2 , Oct 29, 2008View SourceBob/Chris:It's my experience that most seeds of deciduous azaleas will tend to show good germination within 3 weeks after sowing, in a high humidity environment at about 70 degrees. This is an average; all my seed is grown inside in the fall in a heated basement. The humidity is easily maintained by enclosing the seed and its pot in a poly bag. Remember the seed should be scattered sparingly on the surface, not covered with growing medium. IThey will need no light until they germinate and in the poly bag need no watering.Bruce ClyburnNew Waterford, NS----- Original Message -----From: Bob StellohSent: Wednesday, October 29, 2008 2:17 PMSubject: [AZ] Fwd: Propagation of Azaleas from seed

Chris - thanks for asking. I am sending your question on to the experts.
Check out our seed exchange page now and then, as we are about to
post some new seed available this fall.
