Growing pine trees from seeds

Post  Nemphis on Sun Nov 11, 2012 8:18 am

Yesterday I went to the country side and there I picked up a cone from a pine tree and extracted the seeds,19 seeds.
Can somebody with experience in growing pines teach me how to do it?

Most pines are easy to germinate, if the seeds are fresh. In spring, I push the seeds just under the surface of a sandy/gritty seed mix. I've found that they usually don't need any pre-treatment such as stratification. Water only as the mix starts to dry out. These are Japanese black pines that I started from seed bought in Japan.
