Start from seeds? - Knowledgebase Question

I have a nice healthy stand of mature Loquat plants. I have collected the seeds from the ripe fruit. Any help on the best way to grow new plants from these seeds!

Loquat seeds are easy to germinate and they usually take 21 days from planting to sprouting. Plant them in 1 gallon containers (so they have room for root growth) filled with regular potting soil; plant about 1 to 1 1/2" deep. Keep the potting soil moist but not soggy wet. The seeds must remain moist in order to sprout. Now is a great time to plant them. Good luck with your project!
