Palm tree seedlings

0

Windmill palm seedlings transplanted to larger containers for the coming spring and summer.  The seeds germinated over August, into September and October. They spent the fall and winter in a seedling tray. There’s about 70 seedlings, they’re really easy. I collect the seeds from now and into February. I wait until the bean-shape seeds fully ripen into a blackish color, mid-winter in Seattle.  Another person I know collects the seeds from Thanksgiving into December while they’re still green, but I’d recommend waiting until they’re mature and black. My germination rate was around 80-90% for what it’s worth. BTW, these seedlings are from last years seed.
