This large ornamental, evergreen tree, revered in its native Japan where it is the National Tree, was introduced to Britain in 1861, and has attractive red-brown, slightly-peeling, fibrous brown bark and dense foliage consisting of short awl-shaped leaves which are arranged spirally around the branchlets, the pale yellow flowers producing conical cones. Unusually for a conifer, it is able to be coppiced, or cut down to near the ground and is still able to grow new shoots. very good for bonzi.
They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
price is for 10 seeds
