«Les Semences Marie-Victorin» suggests a collection of native plant seeds that will entice the amateurs for the products of our horticultural heritage.
Juglans nigra is not native to Quebec, it was introduced at the end of the 19th century by ‘le Seigneur Joly de Lotbinière’. Its growth is slow and long, but it is a wonderful gift for generations to come! This specie needs a deep and well-drained soil in order to establish its generous root system.
Do not allow the seeds to dry. Bring water to a boil for 5 minutes. Pour over seeds and let soak for 24-48 hours. Mix seeds with an equal amount of damp sand or vermiculite. Place the mixture in a sealed plastic bag. Store the bag in a refrigerator or cool storage room for 30 to 90 days. Sow seeds when there is no risk of ground frost. Or plant the seeds outdoors during the fall. Germination will occur the following spring or later on.
