Carolina Allspice seeds

kinkoraMay 15, 2009

My Carolina Allspice has produced lots of lovely seed pods. I'd like to try planting the seeds this spring. Any advice out there?

You have seeds? My own in just beginning to bloom in what I heard today is the coolest, wettest May on record.

Don't wait till Spring - Clothiers database and Druse both suggest Calycanthus floridus , Carolina allspice , sow fresh seed outdoors in the fall (warm, cold, cool germinator, needs extended weeks at all three seasons to break seed dormancy)

I'm growing these from seed. Sown last November outdoors in a protected container, they sprouted in March and were potted up last month. Only a handful of the seeds germinated.
