Seeds should be scarified - pre-soaked for 12 hours in hot (not boiling) water and then sown in a warm greenhouse in March. The seed germinates in 3 - 4 weeks at 25°c.
As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle, prick them out into individual pots and grow them on in a sunny position in the greenhouse for their first winter. Plant them out in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts, and consider giving them some protection from the cold for their first winter outdoors. Cuttings of half-ripe wood with a heel, July/August in individual pots in a frame.
Overwinter in a greenhouse for the first winter and plant out in their permanent positions in late spring or early summer. Fair percentage.
