Was it last month Art P posted a couple silviculture websites in the string
about osage orange/ Maclura propagation. Should be in Feb (or March)
archive. These might have suggestions for preferred media, in their Prunus
Try an internet search for "[latin name]"+"seed germination"
And the health hazards of a given media can be greatly reduced if you wear a
duskmask rated for the substance.

Seeking seed starting media experiences:
with fruit tree seeds in the following mediums:
1] long fiber spagnum moss
not "peat moss" which is a mined product of ancient mosses,
but rather this is the harvested-from-live mosses, then dried
[and of course rehydrated when used for germination]
2] vermiculite and the like
weren't these recently found to be carcinogenic?
3] compost made in my compost bin
4] you suggest ____________ [please suggest]
5] peat moss seed starting cubes ...e.g. Jiffy 7's and the like
I am germinating plum and peach seed kept moist and cold all winter.
I want to germinate some outside and some inside.
Appreciate your suggestions and experiences.
