Little info about seeds i bought from the above company.
Just finished soaking them for 24 hrs, here's the results.

JBP approx 100 seeds 6 floated.

Mugo pumillo 104 seeds 20 floated.

Dahurian larch 400 seeds 80-90 floated.

I'll give the Larch seeds another 24 hrs soaking, see if more sink.
I'll update this thread,with germination results later, as i'll try 3 different potting compounds.

I bought some Scots Pine from them last week too, instructions were limited but I'll keep you all posted on how it goes

I purchased some larch seeds online, not necessarily from the same company, and I had zero germination success :120ranting:

It's better to buy young whips a few years old, you will have better results.

Chris Thomas is a great source for these, he is at many shows, including Swindon on the 23rd Feb

As Paul says above you can pick up some good young plants at the shows which are good starter trees and at fair prices. You can get larch, scots pine , beech ,hawthorn whips on line ,mainly bare rooted up to about march time and generally around a pound each.

I've had a bunch of different seeds from treeseedonline and all have had very good germination ratios.
As an aside, I had 20 red pine seeds from Canada. Not so many but couldn't get them in the UK from anyone. 7 sank so I thought what the hell and stratified them all. 15 came up, good & strong. It seems crazy to me to ditch seed at the first hurdle now.
I also had a lot of mountain hemlock from ebay, many sank but none germinated, ymmv! Growing from seed sure is fun, and also challenging.
