I have found a tree where I can help myself to seeds, but after three years of trying to germinate them, I’m wondering if they are either infertile or by the time I find them on the ground, they are too old, as nothing has sprouted. I don’t think they are that tricky as long as the seed is fresh.
07.10.2012 At last I really think I have found some good seed. There were some that an animal had nibbled the inside, and then I spotted some that were still whole. Fatter and more solid than the ones that I cad collected in previous years.
Stashed six and put them to soak overnight. Two have sunk to the bottom of the mug allready. This is a good sign of a healthy seed!
