I live at the Northwest corner of Oregon and have had very good luck in growing the gunnera plant. Do you have any information on propagating the seeds? thank you,

Gunnera is one of those weird and wonderful plants. The exotic-looking foliage seems like out of a dinosaur movie! When flowers fade and the seed pods turn brown, harvest the seeds. Then sow outdoors in a prepared bed, just barely covering the seeds with additional soil. (Or sow indoors in trays of moistened seed starting mix and keep at 60F - 70F). Seeds will sprout in 14-60 days. Keep seed bed moist but not soggy wet.
