Spencer, I have a lot of Pinus Sylvestris seeds that just broke their dormancy and started to grow. They are in a very narrow pot made out from a plastic bottle because I didn't expect that much seeds growing, should I let them grow up to 4cm or should I remove them right away into individual pots? Thank you.

Hi Spencer, thanks for your video. A small question on seed growing - I grow my scots pine seedlings in the small biodegradable cells. I keep them under the sunlight indoors and well watered, but they keep dying. Should I put them in the bigger pot, so the cell can biodegrade and add some fertilizer? Thanks!

I got a buzzy seed package as a gift, the pot is 1 inch high, do I need a bigger pot right away so all four seeds don't die on me and have you ever used a pot that small, or germinatated?

Spencer, that was a very helpful video! I was wondering, is 20 days for stratification good enough? And also, how long should I grow the tree indoors before moving it outdoors? Once again, amazing job on the video, keep it up.

I found a spruce pine cone or I should say I pulled a spruce pine cone off of the tree set it on my dashboard in the sunlight which he did it and caused it to drop its seeds I took probably 20 seeds 30 put them in a plastic bag with a damp paper towel no stratification and six weeks later I had for seeds that had begun to be rude or even produce small needlesSo I transferred them to 16 ounce cups with a mixture of topsoil and Pete Moss in them… I will try to update this in a couple of weeks

Hiya, great video. Early this year I used this process to grow some ceder seeds and I've been successful. I have about 10 small trees about 1 inch tall. They've been outside in big tall pots all year (since April). But with winter coming and all the rain weve had this year I've lost a few and now a few more are turning a little brown and look weak and unhealthy. What's the best thing to do. Or should I just leave them to face the winter. Will bringing them in the house help or will the heat kill them. I don't have a green house so not sure what's best. Thanks. Tom

This is great. I have two little ones like you show growing in the same pot. How big should they be before re-potting them? I plan to keep them in pots. And will they survive okay being repotted? Any tips in how to make that a successful transition are greatly appreciated!

What kind of grow lights do you use? How many lumens do you use and how many hours do you keep them under the light? How often do you water the seedlings? Do you water them everyday and how much water do you give them?

Hi. I have put some seeds in the fridge recently. One of them germinated in tissue. And I took it out so as to grow. But left the rest inside the fridge so as to germinate. Do I have to take them out or wait till they germinate?

Hello Spencer, last summer i stratified and sprouted spruce seeds in August, and because they were so small when the winter came in December, i brought them inside my house, where they all died of damping off fungus. I have more seeds now (June 2019), but they are not stratified yet. Do you think its too late in the year for me to stratify and plant them? If they are too small when the winter comes, is there a way to stop them from damping off if i was to bring them inside this winter?

I've a question. I've stratified the magnolia seeds before, though it took around 4months and I did it in a soil fill plastic bags. I guess that paper towel method would work the same way. Just, is there any difference of when to start stratification or not? (By the way I'm going to use grow light). Thank you for a great upload.

Hi, I didn't have any composting mix so I just used regular dirt. Will it work and if I sprinkle composted dirt on it later will it leak down to the seeds when watered.

Hey there,
I got 5 seeds as a christmas gift, so I planted them right away. 3 of them showed up so far and they get me very excited. I was wondering about when should i separate them and replant them in bigger pots, since if they are together, their roots will get tangled and likely suffocate one another? Honestly, I'm very bad with plants and this is my first serious attempt after the beans in kindergarten. Thanks in advance!

allotment life

my favourite way to get conifer seeds to germinate is by sowing in a pot, bury the pot in the corner of a deep bed for the winter ( covered with sharp sand ) an easy form of stratification. then in the spring, I lift the pot and place it in the greenhouse. it works every time, spencer...…………….brian

Thanks for the video. Very interesting. Never thought of growing these at all, though I do like the blue spruce, might give them a go . Would they be ok on a window sill once they have come through the soil?
Thanks again. Nice variety on your channel.
