Description

Seeds collected from the finest and very narrowest of trees growing in our gardens. This tree is 30 feet tall and 3 feet wide and produces impressive, knobbly pine cones every autumn. These trees were originally grown, in 1986, from wild collected Crete seed.

Sowing Advice

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. 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.
