|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!
