Growing Instructions for the Swamp Rose

 

The seeds have a period of dormancy. They can be planted outdoors in the fall or winter for spring germination or they can be cold stratified to simulate winter conditions and to break their dormancy at any time of the year. 1. Scarify the seeds by nicking or sanding the seed coat. The seeds can be sanded with sandpaper, a nail file or an emery board. 2. Soak the seed in water for 24 hours. 3. Place the seeds in a plastic bag and seal it. Store the bag in a refrigerator for 2 months. 4. After the stratification of the seeds, place the seeds in small, growing pots filled with pre-watered soil. A mix of garden soil and peat moss works well. Plant the seeds 1 inch apart, cover with 1/4 inch of soil and place in a sunny location. Be sure to keep the soil moist and never let it dry out as it can kill the seeds. 5. When the seedlings have at least two sets of leaves, they can be transplanted outside after the risk of frost has passed.
