seeds of Prunus jamasakura, detail questions
I got a small batch (ca. 30) of cherry seeds from a friend of mine who asked whether I could raise them.
She got them from Japan, from a friend of hers, because 2010 she had been there + fallen in love with those Japanese cherries.
1) the seeds have been sitting around in the friend`s flat in Japan since 2010, do you think they are still ok?
2) if so, how do you start them? So far I only raised annuals and veggie, never woody stuff.
Do they need cooling/ freezing?
I thought I would pop them in a fridge for a while, put them in a pot and store it in a sheltered spot in the garden.
3) about P jamasakura:
has anyone further information on this species? Only thing I found in the net was: common mountain cherry, height about 36 feet.
Anything about foliage or flowers?
I guess that it is somewhat plain,
(and the showy ornamental cherries are P serrulata, as far as I know.)
It is probably an experiment, and the seeds seem to have mainly sentimental/emotional value for the friend of mine.
Any suggestions are welcome,
thanks a lot, Lin
