I spent the weekend enjoying winter garden clean-up and moving a few plants around. This time of year, the garden is like an Easter egg hunt, with treasures popping through the ground everywhere you look.
I was thrilled to discover a huge crop of aspidistra seed, which we’ll plant shortly. Most folks move through the garden too quickly to see the seed pods, which nestle at ground level.
How do you know when the pods are ripe? I have one and it still looks the same as it did in March.
That’s a very good question. The pod should start turning yellow when its ripe. By now, the pods could most likely be harvested regardless and the seed should germinate.
Did your Aspidistra seeds ever grow?
Indeed. We grow over 300 plants from our seed, and have just made our first round of selections. Of those 5 are variegated, and the others are selected as dwarf clones, of which few exist.
Could You tell me what are the conditions for seeds to sow. Thank You in advance.
Have You got a YT channel or something like that?
I would like to know, if you have seeds of Aspidistra. If so, which varieties ?
Thank you / Regards !
We only gather seed for our own research
