Cypress seeds

Hello

Can someone tell me how to propagate Cyprus seeds. Have tried to propage the seed in the past but have not been successful.

    Sow in soil . Cover with grit. Wait.

    They may take a year or two to start growing.

    I found some growing underneath  a tree, and potted them on. They are very slow growing.

    Many perennial seeds can take a long time to germinate. Peony seeds can take three years.  Don't throw out non germinated seeds, park them in a corner, and just check from time to time.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    Most need stratification which is essentially a cold spell followed by a warm one.  Some seeds need this to happen a couple of times.  You can artificially produce those conditions by putting the seed tray/pot in a plastic bag inside a refrigerator for a few weeks, if you don't want to wait for the Winter to arrive.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thanks Fidgetbones and Bob The Gardener for the advice. My wife will not alocate any space in her fridge for a seed tray so I will have to take the long route to germination.
