I recieved Golden-chain Tree seed yesterday from a friend.Not sure if they will survive here.Do you know anything about this tree?Guess I will google.LOL
Thank's Ron if the all sprout I will have 15-20 tree's LOL I will be sure to plant them away from car's and house's.May have a few to share if they do well.
Before you sow the seeds use a nail file and sand a small hole on each of the seeds. Then soak the seeds in warm water overnight! Then sow and keep them warm!
Germination should be rapid! Usually in 3-4 days.
Caragana (Siberian Pea Tree) seeds are pretty much the same size seed and it works well for me. Making the hole allows moisture to enter the seed and speeds up the germination process!
If it grows this slow I will never see it bloom either but going to give it a try .Maybe someone will enjoy it.I received a golden rain tree in some trees that ordered 2 years ago. Mine is only about 18" tall. The tree died back the first year and came back last year. Hasn't grown much but I'm hopeing it will do better this year. It is leafing out. I don't know how long it will be before I see any blooms. At my age and as slow as its growing I may never see it bloom.
Mine actually bloomed after only two years! It's only 3 feet high. It produced seeds too. Guess I was lucky?
I was just reading up on the Rain Tree and discovered that the seeds need cold treatment in order to germinate!
To accomplish this requirement place the pots in a ziplock bag and stick it in the fridge for at least 4 months!
You're going to have to be very patient Spider!!!
