Growing a Loquat Tree

Zone Atlanta, GA | Anonymous added on April 14, 2017 | Answered

I have some seeds from a tree that was growing in Savannah Georgia. I want to try them in a pot. How deep should I plant them? Should I soak them first? Should I place all of them (8) in my pot?

Loquat seeds are easy to grow from seed, though they will likely not be the same as the parent plant. Trees started from seed will not likely fruit.
They do not need stratification to germinate. Just place the seeds in a starter pot with a good quality potting mix, cover with an inch of soil. Keep moist and in a bright location.
Separate into individual pots when the seedlings are 6 to 7 inches tall.
