sprouting cherry pits

Postby MrsJP » Dec 10, 2008 10:25 pm

Has anyone had any luck sprouting cherry pits?? I'm trying for the first time. Wish me luck. I've had them in the refrigerator for about 3 months now and just put some in pots of dirt, I'm soaking the pots now and going to put them in bags. Any ideas on how long I should wait for sprouts before I call it a lost cause??

They shouldn't take too long.
Might I suggest you nick the seeds, the outer coating is very hard.
Take a sharp knife and scrape a sliver off one end of the seed pit, it allows moisture in a starts the process.
If unsure just do one or two, but mark which ones so you can report your findings.
