Clethra Alnifolia Germination
I'm trying to get a pkg. of summersweet clethra to germinate with no success. I have tried 3 inch peat pots and now getting ready to use a plant bed. What is the secret to getting it to sprout?

You would probably have better luck with taking softwood cuttings from the plant instead. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/how-to-root-cuttings-from-various-shrubs-bushes-and-trees.htm
