  SOWING - The corky seeds enable them to float at sea for yrs. So, germination can be slow! Poke with a needle then Soak Overnite & sow half an inch deep in moist soil mid-spring, either in seed trays, pricking out as they grow, or in a seedbed for transplanting, Transplant your seedlings after the danger of frost has passed. Leave about 16 inches of spacing between the plants, very hardy once established
