    when to harvest redbud seeds

    Does anyone know when I should harvest redbud seeds? Do I need to wait for them to fall off or can I pick them? They've been on the trees for months and I'm eager to plant some!

    I found this http://www.ehow.com/how_4450458_grow...paign=yssp_art. Might try it myself, although I have plenty of volunteers in the yard they don't seem to take too kindly to bare root transplanting.

    I haven't seen alexinoklahoma around for a while; but gathering and starting things from seed was his thing. And I know he had experience with redbuds...

    When the seedpods turn dark brown the seeds are mature and probably 90% fertile.

    RE: when to harvest redbud seeds

    One fall I gathered some pods from a tree for a friend after the leaves fell, misplaced them, and gathered more to send him. Two or three years later I found the pods I had originally gathered, tossed them out in the compost heap, and had dozens of redbuds sprout the next spring.

    The pods stay on the tree well into the winter.
    Invasive species really suck. Plant natives only.
