    Sequoia sprouting?

    I went on vacation and found the most fantastic sequoia tree so I took home several cones in hopes of sprouting a sequoia of my own. I was wondering if there are any tips or anything I should know in regards to spouting and care for my babies before the get established. I'm on the coast in Northern Washtington state and have plenty of room in my yard with lots of sun and a clay/sandy soil so I hope to see them get a 100ft or more before I die. Any tips or suggestions to help them grow faster would also be appreciated. Th nks

    RE: Sequoia sprouting?

    You may have actually been better off to get ahold of a fresh branch. They sprout pretty well from those. As a suggestion (i'm not very good at this myself), you should try to sprout them by first, soaking them in water for a day or two. Then, wrap them in a damp paper towl, but that in a plastic bag and stick 'em in the fridge (NOT the freezer) for about a month I'm not sure if these need cold stratification, but it shouldn't hurt. Then, in early spring, start them in some kind of seed starting medium, perhaps in a greenhouse. Move them to the ground in the next spring. As for growing them tall, you should make sure the roots have plenty of room to spread out when you stick them in the ground. I have heard very good things about Humus tea. You might try that to help the tree thrive.

    Should you not be able to get the seeds to grow, I've found a few places on line that sell the seeds and/or seedlings. I've not had any experience with them yet, but a quick Google search should find them.

    (haven't read all the forum rules, so not sure linking business websites is okay)
