How to germinate Prosartes hookeri seeds:
Soak seed 24-36 hours. Barely cover seed with humus rich medium, keep moist and don’t let seed freeze. Should germinate in a couple of weeks at 10C. In the garden, the seed germinates within weeks of hitting the ground. Does well in pots, just sow in humus rich free draining medium (in a deep pot) and barely cover seed. Sprouts readily when baggie sown.
