Seed storage for the commercial propagator
Commercial propagators routinely produce a diverse mix of seedlings, yet the volumes of the Proceedings of the International Plant Propagators' Society have remarkably little advice on seed storage. Most propagators plant freshly-collected seeds or store seeds only briefly before planting. But there may be advantages to storing seeds for future use. This report will consider some of those advantages, summarize pertinent reports on seed storage for landscape plants, and present some personal experiences with germination of stored seeds.
This is a proceeding of Fortieth Annual Meeting of the Eastern Region of the International Plant Propagators' Society 40 (1990): 571.
