i knew that giant redwoods were hard to gernimate ,and the germination rate was very low . So one out of 75 seeds mmmmm??

Also while am one the topic of seed sowing, by chance i noticed a seedling growing on the floor of my green house ,which is covered with sand.
So just for an experiment i tried some Nasturtiums ,sweet pea, and lupin seed ,see for your self the results.

i sowed loads of coastal redwood seeds and managed to get a single one to germinate. that was a few years ago; it's about five foot tall now.
