DESCRIPTION

HOW TO GROW FROM SEEDS

You can pre-soak the seeds of Sweet Osmanthus for 24 hours in a shallow container filled with hot tap water. Water will penetrate the seed coat and cause the embryos inside to plump up. Then plant the seeds immediately in moist soil. If you are sowing seeds indoors in the spring, soak the seeds and then place them in a sandwich bag filled halfway with moist, seed-starting medium and then cover them with another inch of the medium. Keep the bag in the refrigerator. When the seeds sprout roots, transfer them to pots. After the seeds have started to germinate, move the pots to a sheltered nursery area. 

CARE AFTER GERMINATION

Plant the Sweet Osmanthus plants 120 to 150 cm apart to form a hedge or screen.  Sweet Osmanthus should be grown in full sun or partial shade in well-drained soil. Plants are fairly drought-tolerant once established but will perform their best with ample moisture. Water newly planted Osmanthus regularly until the shrub is established and begins to grow. After the first season, you only need to irrigate it during prolonged dry spells. Fertilize with a general-purpose fertilizer every year or two in the fall. Now just wait for the fruits.
