Temple Juniper seeds

Dayton, OH

I have some Temple Juniper seeds that are about 5 years old, but I would like to know how and when to germinate them.

Thank You,

When I figure out where I got this, I'll send you the link

For faster germination, soak the seeds in slightly hot water for 24-48 hours, followed by 3 months cold stratification before sowing at 1/3" deep in sterile gardening soil. Keep damp soil, not soaking wet. Keep pot in warm situation 68-75F. Germination usually occurs in 2-4 months. It can be a lot more depending on their degree of unbroken dormancy, don't lose faith.
Scarification / Stratification This will break their dormancy. It creates a cold and moist environment for the seeds. Mixed in seeds with slightly moistened vermiculite or peat, only damp in a ziplock bag. Close zip bag shut and store it in the salad crisper compartment of your refrigerator. If any seeds begin to sprout during the cold stratification, simply remove the seed and plant.

I'm thinking since you are in Ohio, you could just plant them if you are planting them in the ground. I'm planting them to grow in pots so I can start anytime. What are your plans?
