1.   Open-pollinated species, with the exception of a very few, may not come true from seed. Cultivars, with the exception of a few perennials do not come true. Plants from these seeds should not be labelled as being that species or cultivar. Be sure that you label the plants as being ‘OP’ in the case of species and ‘ex’ in the case of cultivars.

2.   See the RSCAR Members’ Handbook for an article on growing rhododendrons from seed.
       The article can also be found on the Atlantic Rhodo website.
      Growing Rhododendrons from Seed, the Easy Way is here on this site.

3.  When sowing rhododendrons on peat we recommend you sterilize it first. Microwave it for 15 minutes or pour boiling water through it   
     several times and allow to cool.

4.   We would like to thank the seed donors for their time and effort making crosses, collecting and cleaning seeds. We would also like our 
      membership to take note of the types of seeds donated this year. We highly encourage members to attempt their own hybridization of
      rhododendrons. Seed of uncommon trees, shrubs and perennials is always most welcome.

5.   A note on seed storage- Most Rhododendron and Azalea seed can be stored for a long time if stored in an air tight glass jar in the               refrigerator. Seed obtained this late winter-early spring can safely be stored until the fall and sown then.
      Seedlings grown inside over the winter achieve a better size for adapting to outdoor growing conditions.
