Sowing Lonicera periclymenum

lahore, Pakistan(Zone 10b)

Hi,

I got few seeds of LONICERA periclymenum but i am hesitant to sow them as temperature is very high here around 40C outdoors and 30C indoors. Should i delay the sowing till weather cools down?

Yes you should wait. Lonicera needs a cold stratification period of four to 12 weeks and then will germinate best at temps of 13-18 C. I don't know what your seasons are like, but you could start the seed in moist media and put it in the refrigerator for 3 months before you will have those temps.
