Precautions for Osmanthus Sowing

Precautions for Osmanthus Sowing

Harvest time

Osmanthus seeds are generally harvested from April to May. When mature, the outer skin color changes from green to purple and black, and falls off from the tree. You can pick seeds from the tree or pick up seeds on the ground, but you must pick it up, otherwise, in the dry climate in spring, the seeds are easy to lose water and lose the value of sowing.

Seed modulation

After the osmanthus seeds are harvested, the modulation should be made immediately. The outer skin of the mature fruits is soft, rinse with water, washed the peel, and removed the grains and small grains floating on the water, picking the impurities, and then dried indoors. Do not dry it in the sun. This is because the species of osmanthus seeds lack wax layer on the seeds of osmanthus seeds, so it is easy to lose water and dry, and then lose physiological activity.

Seed storage

Osmanthus seeds must be sowed through a certain storage and germination. This is determined by its physiological and familiar characteristics. There are two types of osmanthus seeds: sand collection and water.


Cover the seeds of osmanthus with wet sand layer. The sandy place is suitable for a cool and ventilated place, and it is stacked on the sandy land.

Water collection

The osmanthus seeds are installed in the breathable and not easily rotten bags. Put the bag in cold water tightly. It is best to flow in the water. Pay attention to check the seeds frequently and observe whether it is mildew or degenerate or loses water. Do not expose the surface of the seed bag, especially in the summer seed bags must be far away from the high temperature water layer of the water to prevent the seeds from germination and heat up.
