Rowan, or Mountain Ash
Sorbus aucuparia

(larger amounts available, just enquire below)

Fast growing deciduous tree
Large clusters of edible orange/red berries in autumn

Requires 4 weeks cold stratification
Simple process of putting seed into cold and moist storage. Keep moisture and air available, above freezing but below 6 deg C. Don't let seed dry out.
Pay attention to the condition of the seed and if showing signs of germination it should be planted out.

1. Sow the seed in moist seed raising mix in an appropriate seed tray, seal in a plastic bag to retain moisture and refrigerate for recommended period. Remove after germination to normal seed raising conditions.
Works well for small amounts of seed

2. Spread seed between two layers of very moist blotting paper, seal in a plastic bag to retain moisture (allow some air space) and then refrigerate for recommended period.
Turn the bag over every few days to stop the moisture rising to the top of the bag. Once stratification is complete wash the seed off the paper, it can be dried to aid in sowing.
