Cranberry Seed

pomme8916November 23, 2006

I have just gathered some cranberry seed from the ones you buy at the store i put them in the fridge, can they still grow? if so, do i treat them? when do i sow them? and does anyone know of a source to buy seeds from?

Thanks

STORE THE SEED AT 40f FOR 3 MONTHS THEN LIGHTLY COVER SOIL TEMP 65-70f & COULD TAKE MORE TO GERMINATE..

yeah, they will grow. Put them in a container of seed starting mix and put them in the freezer for a week or two, then take them out and grow them at 70 degrees or so till they sprout. They grow frustratingly slow, so when I put mine outside, I ended up mowing over them when the weeds took them over. but they did grow, that's what counts. lol...

I bought cranberry seed from localharvest.com. 50 seeds for 4.95 and they were PRE-stratified. BARGAIN!! They come from a guy named Jim Duffy. Localharvest.com is just a bunch of regular folks and seed comes from them. I found them because I had the same question as you, and I'm going to try that planting method. thanks
