How do you grow evergreens from seed?

The seeds of evergreen trees should be kept at least 60 °F (16 °C) for 2-4 weeks in order to properly germinate. A small green stem will form out of the soil for the seeds that properly germinated. If it is under 60 °F (16 °C) outside, bring your seedbed inside so that the seeds can properly germinate.

How to Plant a Pine Tree

  1. Collect seeds by holding pinecones upside down and shaking gently.
  2. Put the seeds in water.
  3. Dry the seeds and put them in an airtight container until planting season (December or early January).
  4. Fill a small pot with soil.
  5. Place a seed just beneath the soil's surface.
  6. Place the pot near a sunny window.

Subsequently, question is, how do you prepare tree seeds for planting? Cover the seeds with a fine layer of sand to a depth about the thickness of the seed. After planting the seeds, gently water them and keep them moist but not wet. Maintaining high moisture and relative humidity is critical to germinating seeds. You can increase the humidity by enclosing the seed tray in a plastic tent.
