Salish Sea gardens and landscapes

Palm tree seedlings


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.
