PLANT PROPAGATION
Propagation methods: seeds, scrub division. Propagation by scrub division is not easy; therefore not all species are propagated by this method. Seeds are sown after picking up (in Autumn) or stratified (in Spring). Young seedlings should be covered from frosts. They are replanted to the final growing place at the second year. Seedlings begin blooming in the second or third year. 300 - 500 seeds per 1 gram, 1000 seedlings per 10-20 grams of seeds sown (depends on seed viability).
