    Hello everyone,

    I have been gathering Western Red Cedar seeds from the trees in my yard. I have about 100, dry and unprepared, in good condition.

    I want to germinate these seeds and transplant them into pots and then the field next season.

    Can anyone give me info on the recommended techniques and equipment to take these seeds through germination and propagation? Any special soil, heat, humidity, Ph, stratification requirements, burial depth, etc?

    Thanks,

    J Stu
