This Year Japanese Black Pine Harvest

Post  Fox CWB on Sat Jul 07, 2012 9:17 pm

Hi IBC members

After a long period of time far from bonsai (marriage / new house etc..), I am back to show my black pine seeds collected last month. There are much more to collect....

Not sure but you probably got beaten to it by critters and birds.

The seeds fall out mostly while the cones are on the trees. You should be collecting them from the trees, just as they are getting ripe. When you collect from the ground you will not get many, if any, good seeds.

This is my experiences. I pluck them from the tree in Summer. Keep them in an envelop. After about a week, some will open, a few seeds will fall out. I will take the open ones, knock them and more seeds will fall out. In some cases, I get a handful and in some cases up to 30. Those that did not open naturally, I forced them open and worked thru the layers. In this way I get more seeds. I have the feeling that those that did not fall out naturally are no good. I am waiting for the new season to find out. Here are my JBP seedlings for this year. Seed harvested in Jan, sowed in March. I am below the equator.
Cheers, CJ.
