I don't care if they don't grow true to form

I need to get some of my Crab apple seeds to sprout

The wet paper towel trick in the fridge for three weeks didn't work.

It didn't work because 3 weeks is extremely inadequate for the amount of time it takes them to break dormancy and be able to germinate. It will take several months to do that.

I take my seeds (mine are broken down into smaller bags and labeled as to whet tree they came from), I air dry them for several days and chuck them in the freezer. I put mine in there just before deer season. I will take them out in March and stick them in those little peat moss pre-formed pellet things that come in a black tray with the clear plastic lid and let Mother Nature do her thing. I then take all the one that came up and transplant them in one of my raised beds. I will leave them there until they are about 2 feet tall and then transplant them in the woods complete with a 6 foot tall wire cage around them. I actually tend to loose more trees to mice than anything else.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Iíve just planted them in potting soil, and while not a large amount came up, it did work. Raised them in pots till pencil sized, then grafted pencil size prunings to the rootstock. Worked well and was a fun project!

Every plant seed will have its own amount of cold stratification needed to break dormancy. I've had rose hip seeds take two years to germinate.

Also if you have any crabapple left on you're tree you could try the some method doing a few every so often so they have been going through a freeze thaw cycle at different rates.

I actually went out of my way this fall to scrounge some rotten apples off trees that had certain characteristics that I liked such as size and especially the ones that stay on the tree all winter and provide a winter time food source for the critters.


I have nothing clever to put here.

I've done peach pits in a zipper bag with dirt in the fridge for a couple months.

I would leave seeds in spit apple till they sprout then remove gently to plant in seeding pot plant appleportion but you may get more than one seedling in that case you could try to separate or just cull the less desired seedling- seedlings.[list]

X2. They need stratification, which is like 3 months of cold temps. You guys should know that apple trees dont bear true for the seeds. This means you need to do a graft if you found an apple tree you like, just saying.

Nonsense as usual. Scott, you need to trust me, I mean if you can't trust me who can ya trust? What you do is freeze the seeds till March. Then you take them out and put them between cheek and gum. You keep them there till May, and then plant. People like me and Teeter aren't always swaping tobacco, we're conservationist! grin grin
