Propagating Syringa vulgaris from seed
My friend has given me some Lilac (Syringa vulgaris) seeds for me to try to germinate for her.
I am aware that, apart from raising plants for use as rootstocks commercially, Syringa are rarely propagated from seed and are usually layered or grafted instead.
After doing a bit of research, it seems that the most success comes by soaking the seed in water for 24 hours, followed by cold stratification for 60 days before sowing.
Does anyone have any experience with Syringa seed?
If so, I would be most glad of any advice.
