Seed propagation method
Some horticultural crops can be propagated by seeds, seedlings and thus retain their hereditary qualities.
apricots and peaches - just apply to such fruit crops.With good care grows hardy, productive seedlings with delicious fruits.However, they come into bearing later compared with the grafted seedlings.
seeds isolated from ripe fruit, washed and immediately sown.During the summer, watch the humidity of the soil and watered as needed.And it is possible to lay the seeds in moist sand and store in the refrigerator or in the basement until the autumn planting, - 5-10 October.
Seeds are sown on the prepared flower bed at a depth of 6-7 cm on the diagram 10 × 50 cm.
Care is hoeing and weeding between the rows, regular watering and fertilizing with ammonium nitrate or liquid organic fertilizer.Over the summer, with proper care the seedlings grow to 80-100 cm tall and ready for the next spring
transplant to a permanent place or the graft as a rootstock.
Prunus tomentosa also mostly propagated by seeds.
The best results are obtained by the spring sowing seeds.Pre stratify seeds within 90-100 days in sand.First, dry seeds are soaked for four days in snow water, which is changed daily.They were then mixed with a clean river sand is moistened and stored in the first month at a temperature of 15-20 °, and then - at a temperature of 0-5 °.In early May, plated on a bed or in the boxes at a depth of 1.5-2 cm. Pritenyayut seedlings from direct sunlight.Care - the usual.The first two years Behold
yantsy grow slowly.Only in the third year they begin bushes and develop a good root system.
chokeberry - another plant that reproduces mainly by seed.All seedlings are relatively the same, retain the basic qualitative properties of this culture.
Seeds can be sown and in the fall and spring.It should be borne in mind that when sown in the autumn, without stratification, shoots appear irregularly throughout the summer, and low germination seed.Best result gives spring planting stratified seeds.Stratification was carried out for 90 days in a cellar at a constant temperature of 4-5 ° C.For this purpose, the seeds are mixed with coarse sand in the ratio 1: 4 or peat - 1: 2.During the stratification substrate support in a wet state.
When sowing seeds mixed with sawdust, evenly sown in furrows and mulching with humus.Seedlings thinned, leaving the distance between the seedlings to 10 cm. The standard size seedlings reach the autumn of the second year.
easiest way to propagate seeds chaenomeles.Sown before winter, they are well sprout next spring.If you do not have time to fall, the dry seeds keep until February indoors and soak in the snow water for 3-5 days in mid-February, then mixed with sand and store until April at +2 - + 5 ° C, making surethe sand was wet.Sow the seeds in rows on a bed.If the shoots are obtained condensed, their thinned.By the autumn of annual seedlings grow.They need to dig, prune the roots of the long half and again put.A year later, the next fall, grow good seedlings developed root system.
However, the method of seed propagation of Japanese quince varietal characteristics in the offspring is not fully preserved.But a variety of seedlings produced and you can select the interesting shapes that differ in height of the bush, as well as the size and shape of the fruit.
irgi KUANADSKOY We also make extensive use of seed propagation.The best planting time - the end of summer, immediately after the collection and separation of seeds from the fruit.Late autumn crops can not give seedlings or seeds will be viable enough.For spring sowing seeds stratified in the fall.
